AIM Institute has fostered the growth of our tech sector for more than 25 years. Our vision is to help make Omaha a cutting-edge tech community where everyone can build a fulfilling tech career.

AIM promotes diversity and inclusion in the tech sector by making outstanding educational opportunities and career training accessible to all, from elementary school through adulthood.

AIM is an essential contributor to economic development in the Omaha area and beyond, developing, growing, and retaining local tech talent that is critical to the success of area companies and entrepreneurs.

What we do

AIM removes barriers to tech education and increases access to technology careers.

Our mission is to grow, connect and inspire the tech talent community through education and career development.

Whether through our code school, our youth in tech programs, our leadership academies, our annual conferences, or our media outlet covering the Silicon Prairie, our job is to excite people about technology, inspire them to pursue a tech career, and help them navigate the tech career continuum.

Why we do it

More tech workers = more resilient neighborhoods, greater capacity for innovation and investment.

Technology—and the tech talent who dream, design, and debug it—is crucial to community success. 2020 has reinforced our core operating principle that everyone needs the opportunity to learn technology skills, now more than ever.

That’s why we offer life-changing tech education to youth and adults alike, to make sure no one gets left behind as new developments reshape our world.
