Digital NEST Helps Silicon Valley Youth Fly in the Digital Age


Excellent article about the launch and growth of NPC Member Digital NEST and Jacob Martinez’ philosophy about the values of our region!

“Jacob Martinez’s Digital NEST spreads its wings across the Silicon Valley Megaregion

Martinez founded Digital NEST, a nonprofit that focuses on tech and career job training for rural youth, in 2014. NEST stands for Nurturing Entrepreneurial Skills with Technology. And like a nest, its locations in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and Monterey counties are incubators for young people to practice new skills and spread their wings.

“I’m done taking kids to Silicon Valley. What if we brought Silicon Valley to them?” Jacob Martinez asked himself. “And what if we invest in our young people the way that Silicon Valley invests in their employees?”

Eight years later, Digital NEST is growing.”
