Nevada County Tech Connection Business • Talent • Education • Workforce Development • Community Working together to Support, Connect and Showcase the vibrant technology eco-system in Northern California. Nevada County has a rich legacy of technological innovation going back over 50 years when the digital media industry was still called video. It started with the founding of Grass Valley Group, a world leader in broadcast technology and continues to this day with over 150 tech companies having an office here including industry leaders such as AJA video, Telestream and Autometrix. The past few years has seen a tremendous “coming together” of all aspects of our community to continue to support, connect and showcase our tech eco-system. The result has been the formation of the Nevada County Tech Connection. NC Tech Connection is based on the Next Generation Sector Partnerships, a business/community model that’s taking off around the country. These partnerships are industry-led, community-supported strategies that strengthen regional economies and connect people to jobs. As such, NC Tech Connection is comprised of Business, Talent, Education, Work- force Development and Community organizations. Together, this world-class community of highly experienced, well-connected individuals committed to helping tech businesses thrive in Nevada County, have made great strides.
