The Puerto Rico Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) of the United States Department of Commerce recognized STREAM Technologies as a minority technology company last Thursday, October 13, during Minority Entrepreneur Week (MED Week).
The ceremony, held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, celebrates each year the achievements of minority businesses and recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs for their contributions to the community and Puerto Rican development.
Others recognized were PSS Pathfinders, Inc, as a Service Company; Eira Aponte, President of QRC Group, as a Business Woman; Power Precast Products, Corp., as a Manufacturing Company; and Merck, as Corporation of the Year.
STREAM Technologies is the first bilingual technology center globally accredited by STEM Education & Research that seeks to foster the growth of future entrepreneurs through robotics, video game development and virtual reality courses for typical, gifted and neurodiverse students between the ages of 6 -21 years.
The lack of opportunities for special education students and few programs with an entrepreneurship focus in the educational system are one of the main motivations for this project.
At STREAM Technologies, we provide the products and services necessary to offer our children and young people these opportunities and prepare them for the socioeconomic and cultural changes that they will face both now and in the future.
Education should never have limitations; It is what helps us progress as a society and what makes us better human beings. What are we doing if we limit our children and young people in the full stage of development?
For STREAM Tech, it is an honor to be recognized, but the approach remains the same. We want the best for our students: an education without limits with a view to the entrepreneurial future with technology.
