TRENTON – Downtown Trenton has a new employer, and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) has a new partner in high-tech educational opportunities, with the grand opening of Maestro Technologies on Sept. 21.

Maestro Technologies, named one of the nation’s fastest growing private companies by Inc. magazine, opened its new headquarters on 1 West State Street in Trenton to numerous community members, elected officials, and business leaders. Maestro handles big data, cybersecurity solutions, application integration, and data management.

As part of the day’s festivities, Maestro and MCCC formally signed an agreement providing new educational opportunities and paid internships to Mercer students. Under the agreement, Maestro will provide computer software and access to the company’s computer labs, as well as paid internships to qualified students. Successful students will receive a certificate of accomplishment and an offer of employment with Maestro or other businesses associated with the company following graduation at Mercer.

In addition, Maestro agrees to provide tuition assistance to MCCC graduates employed by the company who wish to continue their college education.

“We intend to ignite Trenton with a start-up culture, incubator space, training facility, lab, and much more,” said Kamal Bathla, Maestro’s managing director. “Education is important for this. They provide the resources, we provide the expertise.”

MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang praised Maestro for its commitment to downtown Trenton, and for the company’s commitment to provide a quality learning experience for students seeking employment in high-technology, high-demand professions.

“Our students are eager to pursue careers in high-tech industries, and we know through our conversations with employers, employees with these skills are very much in demand,” Wang said. “This is a win-win-win situation, as students can earn while they learn through this program and receive a valuable education, Maestro has access to skilled employees, and the city of Trenton has a new business partner. This is what community partnerships – and a community college – is all about.”
