The local nonprofit i.c. stars Milwaukee increased its fiscal 2021 budget by 21% as it looks to grow its Milwaukee team and support its mission as a tech training

hub despite the effects of the pandemic. i.c. stars was started in Chicago over 20 years ago. The organization expanded to Milwaukee in 2018 with the help of a

Dohmen Company Foundation sponsorship. It is currently based at 411 E. Wisconsin Ave. but is planning for its new home at the Eagleknit Innovation Hub at 507

S. Second St. The nonprofit is moving into the new facility in January. “Our goal is to provide access and opportunity to low-income adults to get into the tech

industry and to really help build diverse pipelines for talent for companies in Milwaukee and in the region we are in,” i.c. stars Milwaukee executive director Sarah

Dollhausen-Clark said.
