Techmatch 2020 was a success! This annual event, coordinated by the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership, has a history of successfully connecting companies who employ entry to executive-level technology workers with job seekers and the region’s post-secondary education technology students. Historically the event has been held on college and university campuses, this year’s Techmatch was virtual and had very similar attendance to previous in-person events.
Twenty-nine businesses had the opportunity to chat or connect via video with the more than 200 job seekers and students who registered for the event. These businesses included small technology-related start-ups, well- established technology companies and some of our region’s premier employers who have large technology departments. More than 2700 booth visits occurred generating thousands of chat messages. Over 400 applications were submitted.
Techmatch is part of The Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership strategy to grow Southwest Florida’s technology sector. Also supporting the Techmatch event was CareerSource Southwest Florida, Two39 Media, Fieldr and Emerge SWFL.
