San Jose, CA, September 20, 2022 – Evocative, a global provider of Internet infrastructure, announces that it is a sponsor of the Nomad Futurist Foundation, with its mission to ‘inspire the next generation to understand how digital technologies power our world.’ Evocative is committed to supporting a wide variety of community initiatives, and the Nomad Futurist Foundation aligns with the company’s vision for a sustainable workforce supporting the future of digital business.

The Nomad Futurist Foundation was founded in 2021 by Nabeel Mahmood and Phillip Koblence, and builds upon the Nomad Futurist Podcast which hosts informative discussions to bridge an understanding of the complicated IT industry with people interested in careers in technology. Donations to the foundation provide funding to create events, educational programs, and other initiatives for both adults and children.

“With over 30 years in the telecommunications and technology industry, I was involved at the beginning of a burgeoning new industry that has a remarkable and ongoing effect on the world. It is imperative that we narrow the digital divide on a global basis, and this comes with the responsibility to ensure continuity today and into the future,” comments Arman Khalili, Founder and CEO of Evocative. “By sponsoring the Nomad Futurist Foundation, we have an opportunity to put action to our vision by working with an organization that provides youth with educational support to help them navigate the complexities of the tech ecosystem and open doors for new careers.”

Evocative is committed to community and believes strongly in giving back through a variety of causes. The Nomad Futurist Foundation joins a roster of organizations supported by Evocative and is one with particular alignment with the company’s vision for a sustainable workforce for the world’s digital future.

“Evocative’s strong beliefs and dedication to their core values aligns with our mission to identify and nurture future leaders in the infrastructure space,” adds Nabeel Mahmood, Co-Founder of the Nomad Futurist Foundation. “Their generous donation will be invaluable as we work together to lead the charge in not just talking about diversity and inclusion but making sure that these initiatives are acted upon.”

The news comes on the heels of the company’s bombshell announcement that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire nine INAP data centers, including colocation and related network services. The agreement adds Boston, Atlanta and Seattle to its nationwide footprint of colocation, bare metal, cloud and managed services capabilities.
