The Hg Foundation - Removing barriers to education & skills in technology.

“It is incredibly exciting to launch the Foundation at such a critical time for technology education and skills development. We welcome the support of Hg, who provide access to a team with deep technological and operational expertise, as well as its wider network comprising over 30 technology businesses and over 30,000 skilled employees.”

The Hg Foundation launches to help remove barriers to education and skills development in technology, and will be supported by Hg, Europe’s leading software and technology services investor.

As well as announcing the official launch, the Board of Trustees of The Hg Foundation also announce its two initial partnerships with Imperial College London and The Tutor Trust, with a further donation for Impetus - Backing the best.

The Hg Foundation’s goal is to support the development of skills that are relevant for today’s job market and contribute to improved employment prospects for those who may otherwise experience barriers to access. The Foundation aims to make a long-term and significant impact in technology education and skills development, focused on the UK, US and Europe.
