Hill Tech Society

Hill Tech Society 

Hill Tech Society is the latest initiative at the Hill CDC with the goal of building a vibrant technological and business community in the Hill District. The first program of the initiative will focus on bridging the digital divide for small business owners and entrepreneurs and working with partner organizations to help narrow the technology gap. Hill District residents will have the opportunity to participate in technology and training classes to overcome digital inequalities and move forward in their careers. Hill CDC through Hill Tech Society will offer a variety of programs and revolutionary thinking that connects place to progress in the context of innovation in coming months and years.

Upcoming Programming

Join us on Saturday, March 27, 2021 from 11:00AM - 12:00 PM for the first Monthly Hill Tech Society Tech Session about the benefit of embedding technology in business culture.
 

In this workshop you will learn the benefits of embedding technology in business culture. Ultimately, leadership is the source of company culture and comes from the company values. Valuable technology tools can be of use for positive and productive reinforcement. This requires thoughtful and deliberate selection with an understanding that it will influence the ability to flourish with technology.

 

During this session, majority of the meeting will be spent discussing:
- company attitude
- collaboration and promotion
- efficiency, employee retention, and job satisfaction
 

At the end of the meeting, we will take questions and feedback to gain:
- Insight on audience needs
- What you would like to see in the next session?
- What technological assistance can we provide?
 

We look forward to seeing you all!

Past Programming

New Year Devices Giveaway

We started 2021 supporting our small business community, helping them to pivot in response to COVID-19 by gifting them with their tech device needs. As such, we gave away a limited number of tech devices to Hill District businesses in need!

Biz + Tech Boot Camp

The first program that we offered as part of the Hill Tech Society is a Biz + Tech Boot Camp was for individuals who had been in business for at least one year and focused on introducing the technology skills that are needed in the retail, food, construction, and artist/creative industries in a post-COVID-19 society. 

By the end of the Boot Camp, participants understood each technology concept and how it fits within their current business model; designed a template to create operational workflows for their business; understood project management software applications; developed and built an enticing profile on social media and enhanced their brand toolkit; understood and identified the best financial management apps for their business; learned to write a business proposal; identified File Transfer Protocol (FTP) sites vs. platform-based systems in construction and much more!
