The tech sector has lacked manpower for a very long time and despite the pandemic, the need for competence in the area remains high. Only in Sweden, the industry expects a deficit of 70,000 people in 2024 unless strong measures are taken. This is stated in the IT & Telecom companies’ new report ‘IT skills shortage’.
SPACE Academy aims to create future career opportunities within digital and tech. This means working towards the goal of closing the tech knowledge gap, designing a society where learning about tech and developing digital skills is available to everyone, regardless of their background or where they come from.
This is partly done through SPACE Academy’s initiative You Can Code, where school classes have the opportunity to get educated and inspired to a career in technology and programming. EPTI’s CEO and founder Arli Mujkic, who came to Sweden as a refugee at the age of 14, was invited as a key note speaker during You can Cade on 10 May 2022.
EPTI is part of the Space team as a software partner and investor. As software partner, EPTI provides a multitude of software services for Space Stockholm. In order to assist in providing world-class events for music, gaming and video-creation, EPTI will implement leading frontend and backend software solutions for the mentioned core areas.
