Dustin Hammer, CEO of Systemverse, established his business in Austin because of the innovative and unconventional spirit of this capital city. He immediately recognized that Central Texas was a place where people come to learn and grow, nurturing diverse voices and incubating unique startups. As a company that helps organizations with business technology, Systemverse understands that their success is tied to the success of this community.

“At Systemverse we live, work and play in Central Texas. When you combine the entrepreneurship in Austin with the natural beauty, the live music and the food scene, there’s really no other place that compares.”

Philanthropy is another crucial part of being a community business leader. Systemverse sought to support a local nonprofit that aligned with their values and reflected their dedication to Austin.

“We feel a responsibility to give back. And part of that is to improve quality of life and ensure that there’s readily available public resources to the community. Sponsoring Austin PBS was an easy decision for us.”

From the research-based content on PBS KIDS to the journalism from PBS NewsHour, Dustin Hammer knows that Austin PBS provides an outlet for every learner, at every stage of their life.

“We chose to support Austin PBS purely and simply because of the programming. They provide Central Texas with informative, educational and entertaining programming that’s free of charge – that’s open access. The quality is second-to-none.”
