New Job Board Connects Tech Talent with Thriving Companies

TRI-VALLEY, CA – July 31, 2019 – Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group and i-GATE launched a new website today showcasing the assets of the Tri-Valley innovation hub.

With 450 tech companies, a $42 billion GDP, and more than $4 billion in venture capital and private equity investment in the past 10 years, the Tri-Valley area has become one of the fastest growing regions in the Bay Area.

“The Tri-Valley has an incredible density of talent and some of the fastest growing companies in the Bay Area,” says Brandon Cardwell, Executive Director of i-GATE. “The launch of TRIVALLEYCONNECT.ORG gives people the chance to connect with opportunities in the Tri-Valley and join one of the most vibrant and dynamic communities in the Bay Area.”

The Tri-Valley is experiencing an economic boom thanks to significant growth in the tech, life science and advanced manufacturing sectors. The region’s collaborative culture is proving to be a major asset for startups and later stage companies alike.

TRIVALLEYCONNECT.ORG also features a new job board in order to showcase the abundance of technology and innovation career opportunities currently available in the region. With so much of the Tri-Valley’s workforce employed in innovation and technology-driven industries, and worker productivity among the highest in the nation, the region has become a hub for job growth and innovation.

Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group member Les Schmidt, of BRIIA, the Tri-Valley’s AI focused accelerator, suggested ITV activate an automated job board to connect talent with local employment opportunities. “The heart of the region’s economic engine is the incredible talent and companies within it. The new system has the potential to turbo-charge that engine, fueling business growth and shortening commutes, ” says Schmidt.

“Connecting talent with thriving companies in the Tri-Valley is a top priority. We want more people to find great work close to home so they can ditch their commute,” says Lynn Wallace Naylor, CEO of Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group. “Companies can now reach directly into our innovation ecosystem to access the top talent they need, and they all live right here.”

Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group and i-GATE are jointly hosting TRIVALLEYCONNECT.ORG to lead and nurture the region’s innovation ecosystem. Organizations like Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group, i-GATE, and BRIIA bring together diverse stakeholders to ensure the Tri-Valley is among the best places in the world to start and grow a business.

The assets and unique features of the five cities that make up the Tri-Valley are showcased on the new site including Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton and San Ramon.
