Our one-of-a-kind Future Edge initiative prepares more Americans with the skills, tools and resources they need to succeed in an ever-changing digitally-driven economy and nurture the leaders of tomorrow, today. As part of this initiative, Future Edge DFW symbolizes Capital One’s commitment to make our region a destination for top talent, spur growth as a world-renowned technology hub, and nurture leaders of tomorrow.
Statistics support Future Edge DFW’s importance. Capital One partnered with the Institute for the Future (IFTF), an independent not-for-profit research group, to explore the trends shaping our region. The report provides insights that help our community think creatively about the future of North Texas and take deliberate actions today to build a future of inclusive economic and cultural prosperity. Among the report’s findings, nearly 8 in 10 of these jobs will require digital skills.
Since 2015, programs like Coders and Bot Camp have helped students develop skills for the 21st century and provide them the necessary resources to understand and explore their interests in STEAM during a critical period in their education. A Basic TrAining: Bot Camp event in April 2019 also launched Capital One’s initiative, in partnership with Major League Hacking, to reach 10,000 students in three years with the Basic TrAIning curriculum. The free curriculum teaches students the basic building blocks to the Python coding language through peer-led instruction, project-based learning, and real-world use cases of AI and machine learning.
