Talent Is Equally Distributed.
Opportunity Is Not.
Together We Change This.
Who Are We
Project 229 2030 Incorporated, operating as
Peach State Innovation and Technology,
is a 501(c)(3) non-governmental organization (NGO)
formed to facilitate rural and underserved community development through the deployment of technology;
to support and conduct nonpartisan research and initiatives
that leverage technology to foster digital upskilling
and community development; to educate the public
on how technology can be used to promote community development, activity, and improve quality of life;
to inform and provide information relative to technology
to the general public that are matters of public interest.
Why We Exist
Communities throughout the country have been adversely impacted by the loss of industrial jobs due to facility closures, relocation, and attrition, leaving an unfilled void in terms
of workforce earnings and economic prosperity.
An investment of innovation and technology resources
can afford, particularly in rural and underserved communities,
an opportunity for upskilling, diversification of
community economies and subsequently, the restoration
of community and economic vitality.
Overall, improving digital and technical skills
in rural and underserved communities can lead
to increased opportunities, better quality of life,
and greater connectivity.
Increased Employment Opportunities: As more jobs become available online and companies move towards remote work, individuals with digital and technical skills will have an advantage
in finding and securing employment. This can be especially
important for those living in rural communities where job opportunities may be limited.
Enhanced Entrepreneurship: Digital and technical skills
can empower individuals in rural communities
to start and run their own businesses. With e-commerce platforms and social media, businesses can operate
and reach customers from anywhere in the world,
providing a new avenue for rural entrepreneurs to thrive.
Improved Quality of Life: Digital and technical skills can
improve the quality of life in rural underserved communities
by providing access to services such as telemedicine,
online banking, and e-government services.
This can save time and money for individuals who would otherwise have to travel long distances to access these services.
Increased Connectivity: Digital and technical skills can help connect rural underserved communities with the broader world.
Through social media and other online platforms, individuals can connect with friends and family, participate in online communities, and engage with people from different backgrounds and cultures. This can help reduce
feelings of isolation and promote a sense of community.
Peach-Tech 5K Initiative
The Peach-Tech 5K™ Initiative has the undertones of a race and it is a race of sorts. The initiative is an effort to highlight the human capital in that exists in our communities while promoting and encouraging computer science and technical skills development.
The objective is to have 5,000 individuals
The platforms are available at no cost and are accessible from anywhere via a data connection.
The 5,000 individuals that learn a coding language or the essentials of blockchain technology and provide verifiable evidence of completion will receive 5 PeachCoins (NS21), a complementary currency and medium of exchange, having an exchange equivalence of $500.00 USD.
The STEMphasize™ Education Initiative has the purpose
of facilitating the bridging of the STEM skills gap by providing to (Pre-K - 12) schools and educators quality, digitally delivered, STEM Common Core and Next Generation Science standard curricula to establish state STEM certified programs within their respective school districts.
Additionally, Peach Tech will acquire and distribute to select rural and budget conscious public schools and districts,
STEM educational resources from Kid Spark Education and
littleBits Education Solutions. These resources are used
by educators in school districts across the country and come with standards-aligned curriculum and activities that foster logical, critical, and creative skills in children and adolescents.
The PeachCoin Complementary Currency Program
is a program launched to foster community economic activity and development through the use of PeachCoin,
a complementary currency operating on Ethereum blockchain technology. By developing a complementary currency system on blockchain technology, it affords
the opportunity to explore and observe one of the many benefits of blockchain technology in practical use.
The PCC Grant Investment Facility is the program by which capital investments in communities will be coordinated.
Through the PCC Grant Facility, we will inject up to
$500 million dollars of capital investment into state community economies through the allocation of
5 million PeachCoins ( NS21), a cryptographic complementary currency and medium of exchange developed
on the Ethereum blockchain technology, to facilitate, maintain, and encourage local spending, community investment while providing community economic stimulus and activity.
The investments will be awarded, considering
settlement hierarchy, in a construct similar to
community block style grants and distributed to individuals, participating communities/municipalities,
and business enterprises.
