Boundless Connections Technology Centers is a 3-million-dollar pilot initiave making state of the art digital technology accessible for everyone. The tech center provides a focal point for young and old with various skill-sets and interests to collaborate and utilize the power of cutting-edge technology. This can be anything from how to help grandparents use their phones to stay in touch with their grand kids, to how regional agencies might use technology to address our regional transportation issues. No topic is too big or too small.
The programs and events are designed to develop a technology pipeline and create a pathway for people to engage and solve local challenges with technology. These programs and events are tailored to various interest groups by exploring tech topics such as “Technology for Real Estate Agents,” “Technology for Parents,” and “Tech for Fitness and Sports.” You can even request a tech topic and we’ll add it to the calendar. We will also facilitate regular community discussions on implementing technology in rural areas like ours – like coordinating transportation and child care.
Co-owners Mike Marvin and Christina Lopez say their hometown is the perfect place to develop a tech sector. “We are excited to be joining walkable Olean. Its the right time and place to be piloting our first Technology Center.” Christina says. Mike goes on to say “The development of the Boundless Connections Technology Center will provide a place for the community to discover how technology is being utilized in various areas of life. Silicon Valley does this on a grand scale for urban settings. We’d like to facilitate conversations in our region about how we can use technology to address local matters.”
