An innovation landscape that is inclusive of developing creative talent and empowering wealth pathways for people of color regardless of challenging lifestyle experiences, disadvantaged educational background, and/or socio-economic status.
To build sustainable social and economic impact within communities of color by facilitating inclusive innovation and talent development that leads to actionable professional and entrepreneurship opportunities. We build immersive campus facilities inclose proximity of neighborhoods thathave limited innovation advancement resources and/or experience tech-enabled education disenfranchisement.
BIPOC cultural  impact is highly illuminated by early adoption and subsequent over indexing consumption within the digital innovation landscape. Conversely, BIPOC communities significantly under index in leveraging our innate talent to create the technology platforms and products to meaning fully share in the parallel economy. Future  job opportunities and entrepreneurial endeavors suggest this dynamic must change now.
