New world. New skills.
Digitalization has accelerated the adoption of technology in more aspects of our lives than we could have imagined. It has certainly created incredible opportunities, but it has also created a growing responsibility for businesses to prepare the next generations to contribute to the future economy.
Our technologies are at the heart of digitalization and we feel it’s our duty to accompany the younger generations in the acquisition of the necessary knowledge to step up in this exciting field of technology.
Our support has different aspects: As an educational company supporting dozens of apprentices, trainees and young professionals paving their road to success or as supporter of local institutions promoting craze for new technologies and science.
Comet makes knowledge transmission and training a priority. The experience and expertise of our employees arouses curiosity and enthusiasm for technology in others too, we are convinced.
We all take the role of the torchbearer very seriously.
We think technology can improve education and we are also convinced that a fair access to education improves technology that provides sustainable progress, safety and quality of life for us all.
With our initiative "Make the future, better" we want to improve education also where the progress has been unequal and unfair through different concrete actions. In a world where new technologies are giving some children opportunities that never existed in a previous generation, others are at risk of perpetual second-class status. Many million of children and adolescents still fail to achieve basic numeracy and literacy. But all children can learn and improve the world if they are given the chance.
Our concrete actions
School on Wheels
It may take the shape of a simple drawing or an online game, but behind the scenes our interactive year-end campaigns in collaboration with UNICEF are having a real effect on the ground to improve children's access to education.
Thanks to the donations generated by the campaigns over the past two years, we are proud to have been able to contribute to Unicef's initiative "School on Wheels", which drove to deprived communities during the Covid-19 pandemic and got children back to school.
Comet collaborated with the Family Giving Tree, a charitable organization committed to serving children and individuals most in need throughout California Bay Area.
Comet managed to collect 18 backpacks at estimated cost of $50 each, along with $450 of online donations. These contributions helped many children of underprivileged families for the entire school year.
Thanks to its long standing membership with the Swiss Science Center Technorma, one of the largest science centers in Europe, Comet contributes so people of all ages can explore the fascinating world of technology in both a playful and informative manner.
