There are many organizations right now currently doing amazing work providing opportunities for students and recent grads to pursue careers in the entrepreneurship and tech space. Several of these groups have specific missions that focus on groups traditionally left out of these fields such as low-income students, women, and minorities. Below we'll keep a categorized and updated list of programs and resources that we know and trust. Feel free to reach out to us if you would like an introduction to someone who has gone through these programs.
