  • (1888PressRelease) July 30, 2019 - Dr. Pandwe, founder of Ecotech Visions, an innovative company that offers guidance and shared workspace to eco-friendly start ups donated $200,000 to fund eco-friendly programs in the City of Miami Gardens FL a predominately Black city that has been known as "Murdergarden" due to increases in gun violence crime in the past decade.

    As a pioneer in the shared workspace market, Ecotech Visions provides a place for local start-ups to access technology, machinery, and resources needed for eco-friendly product development and supply chain management. Ecotech Visions believes that their space can change the way entrepreneurs develop unique products and services that help to conserve resources, sustain our planet, and provide sustainable solutions to unmet industry concerns regarding environmental wellness.

    Ecotech Visions is committed to providing resources and educational opportunities to the public through its eco-friendly, tech, and green centered programs. In efforts to address the access to green educational and sustainable opportunities in Miami, Ecotech Visions has made a large donation to the Ecotech Foundation to assist in funding green programs. According to GuideStar's 2018 IRS Report, Ecotech Visions has donated $100,000 to the Ecotech Foundation. As a commitment to Ecotech's vision of a greener Miami, Dr. Pandwe Gibson, Ecotech's Founder, has agreed to match the $100,000 donation resulting in a total of $200,000 committed to developing green programs in the City of Miami Gardens.

    When asked about this generous donation Dr Pandwe Gibson replied, "More than just rappers, football players and basket ball players make it out of the hood and some of us come back to contribute for the greater good of humanity. I donate to many political campaigns and organizations; Miami Foundation, NPR, The Red Cross, The Miami Dade Chamber to name a few but the reality is few leave their Ivory tower and do anything to create opportunities for good people so I decided to do it myself. The reality is the Digital economy is our future and the best strategy for people to save themselves." Users of EcoTech have access to advance manufacturing equipment, rapid prototyping and scale up resources for startup growth.

    The donation assists in funding the expansion of three of Ecotech's initial programs which includes The Digital Citizen Bootcamp, The Green Scouts, and Ecotech's sustainable housing project. Each program serves different aspects of the community. The Digital Citizen Bootcamp provides free training for people in the Miami area to become experienced in IT services to qualify for better jobs throughout the industry. The Green Scouts is an internship program that provides hands on work experience in a green, tech, and eco-friendly workforce to high school students. The Sustainable Housing Project is a partnership between Ecotech Visions & Build Everyday Better, an eco-friendly developer, to build eco-friendly and affordable container homes in The City of Miami Gardens. Ecotech Visions is not only changing how start-ups use shared office space and workspace solutions in Miami, they are providing hands on opportunities for residents to learn more about green tech. To date, over 75 businesses and entrepreneurs have taken advantage of the incubator and maker space to launch their green companies.
