Website Update:

  • Home page: main call to action will be newsletter

  • Registration will provide email addresses and other data.

  • Two Sections:

    • Residents interested in tech (jobseekers): new skills, new employment, connect with schools, etc. What else do we want to promote to jobseekers now prior to survey data coming back?

    • Business community interested in relocating, hiring remote positions, networking, resource sharing, etc. Could include a template for starting a business in the Diablo Valley. Why are tech companies here, what do they need to expand /hire more here. Need to be able to share infrastructure information to attract tech companies.

    • For both groups, created landing pages based on previous discussions: benefits of living here, benefits of working here, community proximity to different city centers, plugging into DVC, etc.

  • Added a searchable business directory with data from Crunch Base that can be updated quarterly.

  • Need feedback on content.


  • Releasing the survey right now may sound tone deaf due to the current climate, so need to use care with questions and timing.

  • Website will legitimize the survey.

Project Planning (Storybooking):  Brian, Tamer, Ryan, Beth

Students/Job Seekers (Schools):  Beth, John M, Jim B

Business:  Jags, Tamer, Brian, Mario

  • Next DVTI Meeting: July 2nd.

    • Will do a run-through of the survey to make sure the questions are appropriate

    • Please think about additional agenda items.
