Big Tech influences almost every aspect of modern life, and local tech ecosystems are no exception.

It’s not surprising, then, that communities’ Ecosystem Builder supporters — like universities, law firms, accelerator programs, economic development groups, coding bootcamps and corporate entities — occasionally partner with Big Tech firms to aid their missions.
