Creating a Bridge to Bring Private Sector Talent to San Jose City Government
Jeremy led the city of San Jose’s efforts to implement the TalentBridge program. Working with the Office of Mayor Chuck Reed in San Jose, Jeremy led the development of San Jose’s first public/private partnership to bring pro-bono talent from city companies to make city services more effective for residents - a program called the Silicon Valley Talent Partnership (SVTP). SVTP projects included building a web-based business permitting and licensing website and building a financial plan for San Jose’s parks. He developed a strategic plan for SVTP that created 4-5 strategic projects in its first year, and brought over 20 pro-bono corporate professionals to the program.
