Technology is our key.
Together we decode economic freedom.
“When I was finally released from my 9.5 year prison sentence, many employers would not hire me. I knew I wanted to become a software engineer but I needed extra help. The dedication, time, resources, equipment, emotional support and financial support from Emergent Works is the biggest reason I was able to see this through. Today I can proudly say I am a thriving Software Engineer.”
