What We Do
IBG’s core mission is to provide students in disadvantaged neighborhoods with early exposure and access to technology. We believe that by the age of 7, all children should be able to write and debug simple code and explain the basics of how a computing device works. IBG will allocate 10 percent of all revenue to fund the K-12 Education Technology Stack through IKON Cares. A dollar spent with IKON Business Group is an investment back into a child’s future.
How We Do It
IBG has created a methodology called the K-12 Education Technology Stack which provides exposure, excitement, and training from the pre-K to 12th-grade levels. IBG has created a non-profit called IKON Cares that works with educational institutions to execute these initiatives. IKON Cares helps with raising money, specifications, procurement, training, and support in implementing new technology within the classroom.
“It’s often a challenge for teachers to create engaging projects that feel relevant to students. With IKON’s help, we were able to bring in a first-class robotics program that the kids loved. Applying the concepts they learned in the classroom to create a physical object that they could see and touch really ignited their passion for learning and gave them a better grasp of the material. It was a success for everyone involved, and I would highly recommend other schools partner with IKON Cares.”- Kevin Williams, Bronx Better Learning
