Sunshine infusion for Louisville weather startup. Global private equity firm TPG announced it was investing $100 million in Climavision, a company that is improving weather forecasting. That’s the single-largest investment of capital in a Louisville startup in the city’s recent memory. Climavision plans to sell proprietary weather data through software, and with their cash injection, they will expand their office in the Louisville area.
Investment in Louisville startups and tech companies means growth for their tech ecosystem – and that means new job opportunities. Tech job postings in Derby City have increased by a whopping 59% since the start of this year, according to the Louisville Business Journal.
Tech Louisville is helping to fill the hiring gap. A new training program, created in partnership with KentuckianaWorks, includes a combination of online learning, classroom time, and professional mentorship. Grads can earn a Google IT Support Professional Certificate and land positions like Technical Support Representatives, Network Support Technicians, and Systems Administrators.
