The Greater Irvine Chamber is partnering with software development and design company Vincit California as they launch Coded in OC, a website that highlights Orange County software development companies, which are helping to fuel the local economy.

The recently launched site promotes several prominent companies that produce their software in Orange County. Companies that register are vetted before receiving a Coded in OC insignia to place on their website showing their commitment to growing the local economy and workforce.

“The importance of Coded in OC is to grow the local economy by encouraging companies to invest in local talent, grow and retain the local workforce, pursue innovation, and shine a light on Orange County’s technology community,” says Naushad Huda, director of strategy and partnerships at Vincit.

Irvine is an emergent hub of tech startups and it’s also at the epicenter of Southern California’s innovation ecosystem. The Greater Irvine Chamber team is energized by the work that goes on in Irvine every day, and Vincit helps punctuate that with the Coded in OC initiative.

“The depth of leading-edge software development is an important component of Irvine’s innovation hub,” said Bryan Starr, president and CEO, Greater Irvine Chamber. “Orange County businesses bring a high level of value to the world of technology and to end users. Coded in OC is a step to recognizing this strength.”

Greater Irvine Chamber member Irvine Valley College (IVC) has also partnered with Vincit for the Coded in OC initiative.

“Workforce development to meet the need for qualified technology talent is at the heart of Coded in OC,” said IVC president Dr. Glenn Roquemore. “IVC houses a strong complement of technology programs, faculty, and curriculum that, combined with partners like Coded in OC, will go a long way toward meeting workforce needs for 21st-century technology jobs in Orange County.”
