As a leading managed IT, security and cloud services provider – and engineering firm – we are thrilled to introduce you to our latest concept: The STEP CG Innovation Center, which will be located in our new headquarters at the RiverCenter in Covington, Kentucky.
After attracting top talent, STEP CG sensed a certain momentum was building and felt that it could not be contained – so we decided to nurture it. The time was right for collaboration, and our team of thought leaders soon determined that we needed a bright space where engineers, IT experts and STEP CG clients could hold a gathering of the minds, get educated and devote both time and energy to the art of innovation.
“STEP CG has built a reputation as a company that constantly innovates and delivers next-generation technology solutions for businesses in our community. We are committed to bringing investment, job creation and retention to the region. With the Innovation Center, we are able to offer world-class training and certification in the latest and greatest networking best practices and innovations to inspire and grow the next generation of IT talent in greater Kentucky.”
-Rob Huff, Founder and President, STEP CG
Why an Innovation Center?
The 7,000+ square-foot Innovation Center represents our commitment to investing in the local community today in order to create a better tomorrow for people around the world. By opening an Innovation Center in our new HQ, we are upholding our core mission of helping businesses and individuals understand the connection between imagination, action and results. The line is not always straight, but it doesn’t have to be in order to get the job done. All it takes is a shared vision to push boundaries and invent the world we will all inhabit together in the future—and then getting the right people to work hard in order to accomplish shared goals together.
Are You an Innovator?
We are challenging the world’s best and brightest to join us in our quest to put technology to work for the good of the people, not the other way around. You don’t have to consider yourself an “idea person” in order to come up with the next great invention. You just need to believe in yourself and find the courage to put your ideas out into the world and see where they can go.
It’s important to continue future-proofing your business by developing technical skills, and the easiest way to do this is through a professional training and certification process. STEP CG is partnering with Extreme Networks, Inc. and other industry leaders to facilitate top-tier learning experiences. The curriculum will complement that of local engineering and computing programs (both K-12 and higher ed).
Extreme Networks, Inc. is “excited to partner with STEP CG to develop the next generation of networking talent. The Extreme Lab will provide STEP CG with the ability to offer valuable, hands-on training and certification on the latest innovations in cloud networking, security and AI/ML technologies. Our practical curriculum – available physically and virtually – will give students a true competitive advantage as they seek to advance their skills in the high-demand technology industry and make their way in the workforce.”
-Dan Dulac, Vice President of Solutions Strategy, Extreme Networks, Inc.
Establishing an Innovation Center at the new STEP CG headquarters will also open the door for incredible inventions to take root right here in Covington. The timing could not be more perfect; the world has undergone rapid changes during these last few months, and if the coronavirus crisis has shown us anything, it’s that being outfitted with the right technical training, technology and IT solutions can make the difference between failure and success.
Our Innovation Center will be a springboard for stability and growth, enabling brilliant minds from different industries to team up and tackle huge global challenges together.
We’re ready to STEP up. Care to join?
