Back in 2019, Apple, an American multinational technology company, held its first-ever Entrepreneur Camp which is an immersive tech lab for app-driven companies founded and led by developers from underrepresented as well as marginalized backgrounds.
This 2021, Apple is more than ready to show its ongoing commitment and support to the Black community and break down by welcoming 13 leaders and their teams from 13 different companies to start the Entrepreneur Camp for Black Founders and Developers.
The Thirteen Developers
For Apple’s inaugural Entrepreneur Camp for Black Founders and Developers, the company selected 13 developers to take part in their program that aims to enhance their existing skills in business and app development.
“These incredible app creators and business leaders embody the entrepreneurial spirit that runs so deep in the Black community,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives.
Developers of the apps such as B3am, Black, Bar Exam, Film 3D, FormKey, Health Auto Export, Hologarden, Hubli, Justice Royale, Kickstroid, Nailstry, The Peek: TV Shows and Movies, and TuneBend are part of Apple’s roster for the Entrepreneur Camp.
A Program That Shows Results
Participants who have taken part in the earlier versions of the program were able to secure major funding as well as garner numerous awards and distinctions that allowed them to expand both their teams and app users all over the world.
Apple has designed the Entrepreneur Camp to give developers the opportunity to take their existing app experience to new heights by mastering new technical skills and applying a critical perspective to the user experience among others.
The program also allows its participants to utilize the company’s technology labs, receive one-on-one code-level guidance from Apple experts and engineers, and receive mentorship, inspiration, and insights from the top leaders of Apple.
Partnering For Racial Equity and Justice
Other than starting the Entrepreneur Camp for Black Founders and Developers, Apple is also partnering with Harlem Capital which is an early-stage venture capital firm based in New York that invests in diverse founders to offer guidance and mentorship to the participants.
This new partnership is part of Apple’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI) that builds on the company’s work to promote racial equity in various fields such as education, the criminal justice system, and more.
All these commitments by Apple aim to expand opportunities for people of color and their communities across the country to help build the next generation of diverse leaders.
