Diversity Fellowship Sponsors

Disrupting the status quo is our mission.

Taking advantage of being a hackathon on wheels, we can bring communities physically and directly together, and engage in a meaningful cultural and knowledge exchange face to face.

Our national team of conductors is composed of 40% women, with a variety of ethnicities represented.

We Believe:

  • Entrepreneurs from low-income and marginalized communities have the deepest understanding of problems in their communities.
  • Their unique perspectives enables them to develop solutions that address the root causes of systemic problems.
  • Given the right mix of opportunities, tools, and mentorship, these entrepreneurs have the most potential to ignite change.
  • Success stories inspire others to imagine “better” and see themselves in positions of sustainable influence, ultimately paving new paths to change.
