where does funding go
A major factor in supporting diversity in tech, is centered around education. With access to education, founders have the tools necessary in building concepts, and business solutions that are likely to gain funding and investment.
Tech Alley partners with mentors, advisors, investors, City and Private organizations to provide education and access to resources. Your donations go to supporting these education sessions and cohorts.
A major barrier for minority founders is access to professional networks that can relate to, and ultimately fund and invest in business concepts.
Tech Alley partners with public and private groups to organize and participate in networking and mentorship opportunities for our sponsorship recipients.
The ability to simply attend events, meetings and networking opportunities, is a major barrier for entry.
Tech Alley partners with and funds the travel needs of our sponsorship recipients, so that they may attend local and non-local events, in order to support their efforts to establish their concepts and funding.
There are many biases in tech. Many founders struggle to find support or funding due to disabilities, criminal records, or gender barriers.
Tech Alley partners with and helps to facilitate alternative methods for founders, in order to break and subvert biases. From simple measures such as, partnering with groups that support diversity, to supporting unique travel opportunities, and curating investors and investor groups that are supportive of diversity in this space.
