From The Bronx to South Florida, this edtech founder is working to build STEAM skills for our future workforce.

Growing up in The Bronx, Carlos Vazquez saw firsthand how underrepresented communities were missing the opportunities they needed to excel in the workforce. As a first-generation college student himself, he also understood the importance of education, and knew that becoming an educator was what he was meant to do. 

As the founder of Miami EdTech, a 501©(3) education technology non-profit organization, and GoSprout, an apprenticeship management platform, Carlos is dedicated to providing opportunities for not only students, but also Miami’s local workforce. 

“Miami EdTech provides teachers, workforce members, students, and the community with engaging and effective professional development opportunities in STEM, to ultimately support edtech innovation through connection and mentorship,” Carlos shares.
