Hutch company Ey3 supporting Employ Prince George’s in new contract

For Ey3 Technologies founders Summer and Terry Bazemore, making an impact in their community is essential to their work.

We’re proud to announce the Hutch cohort graduates (Class of 2020) are supporting Employ Prince George’s in a new contract. 

Employ Prince George’s provides community and workforce development programming for Prince George’s County to improve the local economy. The non-profit provides candidates with training and opportunities for in-demand and high-growth careers. They also equip businesses with qualified candidates for their open jobs. 

As part of their two-year contract with Employ Prince George’s, Ey3 is providing free Scrum Master trainings to eligible Prince George’s County residents ages 18 and older. These trainings are also available at an additional cost for interested participants who don’t meet the eligibility requirements. The Ey3 team is focusing on returning citizens, unemployed individuals, those seeking a career transition, and senior citizens for training opportunities.

“This is a huge win for us. It solidifies our mission of impacting the community,” said Ey3 COO Terry Bazemore Jr. “It also lets us work in our home of Prince George’s County. We’re excited for this opportunity to help reduce unemployment within the county.” 

Participants who successfully complete the program will earn their Professional Scrum Master (PSM 1) certification.

Employ Prince George’s offers more than a dozen workforce training programs, but Scrum Master training is a new offering for the group. Ey3 is partnering with Zion Church of Prince George’s County to establish recurring recruitment events for the trainings.

“There’s a real need for this,” says Summer Bazemore, Ey3 CEO. “And this fulfills our itch to be out there in the community and provide valuable services” that help Prince George’s County residents. 

Ey3’s impact in their community

Ey3 is a woman-owned cyber security digital services and systems engineering firm. The company is based in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Ey3 has provided intelligent and innovative solutions for the Department of Defense (DoD), and Federal, State, and Local agencies. 

“Ey3 is a role model when it comes to building socially conscious businesses that want to impact their communities and the world around them,” says Stephanie Chin, Hutch Program Manager. “Their deep care and involvement in their home of Prince George’s County is proof that doing good and doing business can thrive together.” 

This training program with Employ Prince George’s is an extension of mentorships, career coaching, and internships Ey3 has offered in Prince George’s County.

 “A vital part of the Hutch incubator experience is helping our companies build civic leadership into the culture, ethos, and operations of their businesses,” says Stephanie. This contract is an exciting opportunity for Ey3 to further that mission. It will allow for direct, person-to-person support of their community. And it will give Prince George’s County residents an important tool as they build, rebuild, or pivot their careers.
