Through Google Developers Launchpad, startups can receive mentorship guidance, and get educated on how to build and scale a successful business from Google and Silicon Valley experts.
Tech talks, code labs, mentor hours, and design sprints are all provided to start ups through mentorship.
HHF also works with sponsors, partners, and other organizations to provide Latinos with more opportunities in technology, in different cities, nationwide!
Code as a Second Language (CSL) is a national initiative that introduces youth to computer programming and makes technical training and careers accessible to Latinos, youth, and women everywhere.
HHF also offers a fellowship through ExxonMobil, where students are paired with a mentor for an exclusive mentorship program.
Our ESA LOFT Video Game Innovation Fellowship also serves as a platform for top minority game developers by identifying and promoting the top 20 innovators who can create a mobile application that will focus on new, technology-based approaches to address local and global social issues.
Regardless of profession, age, ethnicity, or gender, technology is an everyday asset and taking advantage of networking opportunities that are exclusive to your area are important!
