HBCU hack-a-thon making its way to Grambling State

Black Founders has made Grambling State University the next stop on their HBCUHacks hackathon tour.


Black Founders’ HBCUHacks program visits black college campuses over a weekend and introduces minority students to the building blocks of tech entrepreneurship while helping students begin their tech careers through direct connections to tech companies.


On March 20-22, Grambling students will come together to use their coding, design, and business skills to build software and mobile apps.


The hackathon is open to students of all majors who are interested in technology. Students can sign up to participate in the hackathon at www.hbcuhacks.com/grambling.


Black Founders has brought their hackathons to Howard University, Morgan State University, and the Atlanta University Center Consortium (Clark-Atlanta University, Morehouse University, and Spelman College).


Black Founders will continue to announce new hackathons at HBCU campuses throughout 2015.


Historically black colleges and universities graduate approximately 20 percent all black students with computer science degrees every year, but diversity reports from the top tech companies continue to find that fewer than 1 percent of their tech workforce is black.


The Black Founders event presents an opportunity to find and support talented black students interested in technology careers and entrepreneurship.
