Sponsor Feature: EngineerKit
Meet our 2nd Gold Sponsor, "Launching People" in the tech ecosystem
When the Carolina Code Conference was announced, Gavin Coyle of Enok Collective was one of the first people to reach out to become a Gold Sponsor to support the event. We asked him why?
“We are thrilled to see Barry revitalize the Carolina Code Conference and the local meetup community. We believe these intentional connections will reinforce the importance of collaboration and craft in the Upstate and throughout the South Carolina tech ecosystem,” said Coyle. “We can do more together than apart.”
“As sponsors, we want to share the EngineerKit story of “Launching People” in the tech ecosystem,” he continued. “We believe this takes fostering a community, illuminating pathways for growth, and equipping leaders and organizations to create an environment that attracts, grows, and retains software talent in this growing community.”
Enok Collective has been involved with the Carolina Code Conference since our very first year and we’re thrilled to see the involvement continue.
"EngineerKit's approach to coaching as a mentor has given me a robust framework for approaching mentorship conversations with my coworkers. I used to struggle to find the right words to say, and I was frustrated that I couldn't communicate effectively. Now, I know a tried-and-true method of bringing out the best in my peers, and as I start putting it into practice, I am already seeing amazing results."
- Nick Marsceau, Solutions Architect at Smith Drug
Tech ecosystems live or die from the support of tech hubs, investors, educators, and governments as entrepreneurs and companies innovate and launch meaningful products. With the right conditions and forward momentum, these ventures need access to a community of skilled talent to deliver and rapidly scale. We believe the EngineerKit platform addresses the demand for retaining local skilled software talent, at scale, through equipping mentors with an out-of-the-box approach to 1) create customized learning and development pathways for their mentee or teams to reach success and independence as they contribute in their software roles and to 2) mold an interdependent culture where everyone in the organization has a shared responsibility for the growth and success of those around them as they align with the goals and desired outcomes of the organization.
