We create programs that connect top Black and Latinx tech talent with companies, funders, and fellow technologists committed to diversity and inclusion.
Our programming is focused on supporting emerging tech talent. Our flagship program, the Code2040 Fellows Program, is targeted at college- and graduate-level students with excellent technical skills who are excited by the opportunity to spend a summer working with the best in the industry in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Tech Trek is an all-expenses paid, week-long program that brings together Black and Latinx computer science students from across the United States for deep peer-bonding and visits to Bay Area tech companies.
Code2040 is also working with emerging entrepreneurs through our Residency Program, powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. Through these programs and custom engagements, we work with tech companies from startups to industry leaders to craft unique, impactful partnerships and initiatives that will help them attract, hire, and retain diverse talent.
See an overview of our programs below.
The Code2040 Fellows program
Code2040's flagship program places top performing Black and Latinx college level computer science students from around the country in an intensive summer career accelerator in the San Francisco Bay Area. Students intern at top tech companies and participate in a series of career building sessions on evenings and weekends.
Breaking into the tech sector requires not just skills, but the experience, confidence, and connections to apply them.
