Community can be defined in various ways. At DataNexus we breakdown our involvement into these categories:
- Technology Collaboration
- Rural Community Building
- Philanthropic Donations
DataNexus tries to be involved in speaking engagements, forums, and process sharing with partners to develop better solutions for everyone. We have collaborated on multiple projects for the betterment of other organizations. Some of this work is shared on our blog case studies and media, but most is done in forums and side-conversations. We love open-source and collaboration in those communities helps everyone!
Living rural does not mean "less" and one of our main goals is to bring the rural community together and get them the resources they need to be stronger. We do much of our work with TechSTART, and are involved with expanding the local tech sector opportunities to include remote and rural options. We also work closely with the education sector in both Fremont and Park County. In Fremont, we are working with the local high school internship placement in STEAM and PTECH areas of alignment. (PTECH is a grant that pays for two years of college at Pueblo Community College!) This effort is directly through the TechSTART partnership above. In Park County, we volunteer teaching and technology resources to a small charter school in our community. Guffey Community Charter School serves a small group of rural children, and is extremely important to our community.
DataNexus Community Goals
Our mission, "to make it easier for people to bring together data from disparate sources in a secure and compliant manner, enabling analysis in near-real time," is centered around our goals to improve community. At the core, we hold the most value in shaping the world around us through service. If you would like to be involved in any of our community projects, please contact us!
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Booker T. Washington
Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.
Being involved in the well-being and advancement of one's own community is a most natural thing to do.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
Marian Wright Edelman
Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving our community and world better that you found it.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
We cant help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
Martin Luther King Jr.
One of life's most persistant and urgent questions is... What are you doing for others?
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
