TECH READY MISSION
Through DPI, TechReady provides various training opportunities in support of both experienced professionals looking to sharpen their skills and “newbies” interested in pivoting to a tech career. Our high-quality programs are designed and taught by some of the best academic institutions and partners in the region. In addition, participants have access to career development and networking opportunities through the TechReady community.
ABOUT DISCOVERY PARTNERS INSTITUTE
The Discovery Partners Institute empowers people to jumpstart their tech careers or companies in Chicago. Led by the University of Illinois System in partnership with top research universities, it does three things: tech talent development, applied R&D, and business building.
DPI prepares students and workers to step into high demand tech jobs. It also builds research teams and matches them with new funding. With state investment and a new innovation district in development, DPI has the resources to attract, develop, and leverage the most ambitious people and companies the region has to offer — and keep them here.
