Our mission is to empower underrepresented young aspiring small business owners from underrepresented communities (ages 18 to 29) at each stage of their startups’ journey by connecting them with the right business mentors and resources. We’re a highly-ambitious, nonprofit tech startup - there aren’t too many like us, we combine the pace, feel, and Lean Startup approach of a tech startup with the business model of a mission-driven nonprofit.
