Description

50 Latinx led ventures across 5 cities in 54 hours 1 weekend... let's do this!

Did you know that the Latinx community is the second largest ethnic group in America made up of 52 million people? By 2060, over a quarter of the entire U.S. population will be Latinx - that’s about 119MM people and over a trillion dollar market that remains untapped - until now!

Join us for the 1st ever National Startup Weekend Latinx in Tech in history! We’re bringing 500 Latinxs and allies together for 54 hours in 5 cities - Oakland, LA, Chicago, Miami and New York - to ideate and design tech solutions to the problems affecting the Latinx community. Participants will be mentored by some of the brightest minds in tech, business, and development. Stay tuned for amazing judges, mentors, and community members. Participants do not have to be of Latin descent.

OAKLAND, CA
Oakland is our home, a city whose diversity, scrappy reputation, history of social justice, and proximity to Silicon Valley sets it up perfectly to be the epicenter of the social impact tech ecosystem. As the Kapor Center states, the Town is on it's way to becoming the home of "tech done right!"

We are providing student/part time employed participant scholarship. To apply visit: http://bit.ly/LatinxTechScholarships
