Our Mission

The world is changing. The skills of yesterday are not the skills of tomorrow,
and many professionals, universities, and companies are struggling to keep up.

The way people choose to live and work is also changing. Today's workforce demands flexibility and mobility,
and has embraced the gig economy to obtain their demands.

Tyro understands these changes and how to positively affect them.
Through effective and efficient programs delivered through strategic channels - including higher education,
Tyro is training the next generation workforce to build knowledge-based economies atop innovation and entrepreneurship.
