The 1819 Innovation Hub, the heart of the innovation district at the UC, welcomes a new variety of students this month.

Cincinnati Bell is partnering with Kable Academy, an education startup providing cybersecurity and web development courses. 12 week full-time and 24 week part-time programs are available.

The partnership’s core goal is closing the tech gap and fulfilling the estimated 3,500 tech job openings in Greater Cincinnati.

“It is critical that organizations partner to develop a pipeline of talent that will support the growing demand for skilled IT resources in Greater Cincinnati and beyond,” Kevin Murray, senior vice president, and CIO at Cincinnati Bell told us.
