In the fall of 2015, our founder Suzanne, enrolled in a Leadership Seminar class at Rivier University as part of her MBA. At the time, she was also working full time as a corporate trainer at a software development company in Massachusetts. The other students in the class came from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and the focus of the class was on being a leader in the world.
The final project in the class required each student to create a 5 year career plan. As Suzanne reflected on her own experiences and what she wanted her own impact on the world to be, she thought back to the short time she spent working as a program manager at a STEM education company in Nashua. The experience had been rewarding and fun and the programs really did make an impact - many of the students and instructors went on to top colleges and went into careers in different types of engineering and design.
So Suzanne decided that she wanted to return to the company and be part of its growth. The company, however, was moving out of Nashua because the owners had moved to California. Having rediscovered her passion and desire to grow STEM programs in the area, Suzanne didn't give up - instead, she left her job in corporate America and founded Leaders of Future Technology - LOFTechnology.
Although Suzanne knew how important it is for kids to have fun in after school or vacation programs, she wanted LOFTechnology to be more. In ten years, the workforce will see a higher demand for skilled technical workers but a smaller pool of those workers. So encouraging and teaching kids in STEM topics is more important than ever. But even more important will be the need for innovators in the future, who understand the importance of taking risks, communication, collaboration, leadership, and creativity. We are at a point where technology can do so much and we need more people who can not only work with the new technologies that are developed every day, but who can come up with new and better ways to use technology to create solutions that will solve many of the problems the world faces every day. They will improve healthcare, environmental sustainability, public safety, and so many other important areas that will make our world a better place.
This is why LOFTechnology exists. Join us as we create the next generation of innovators.
