About Digi-Bridge

Our Mission

Digi-Bridge aims to equip shareholders with the means to foster optimal use of technology in the learning environment, ensuring that all 21st century learners have opportunities to succeed in the digital age

Our Vision

Digi-Bridge aspires to create a generation of well-equipped 21st century learners.

Our Story

Access to technology creates opportunity and Digi-Bridge Founder David Jessup witnessed a technology deficit in 2009 when he first entered his classroom in Miami as a Teach for America Corps Member. Shortly thereafter, Jessup worked with the Knight Foundation to implement a One Laptop per Child program in Miami to provide one-to-one devices to students. After launching the same program in Charlotte in seven West Charlotte CMS schools through Project Lift, Jessup sought a way to engage with entire classrooms.

Digi-Bridge launched in 2014 to make sure all 21st-century learners have both unique and real opportunities to succeed in a modern, digital age. Since 2014, Digi-Bridge has provided technology-based, hands-on STEAM experiences to more than 17,000 scholars. We do this through STEAM and robotics programming in our partner CMS schools, working with community partners and hosting events.

Founder of Digi-Bridge, David Jessup Jr.
