If you’re an AUC college student (if you don’t know what the AUC is, this post is not for you here is a Wiki link) and you have an idea for an app or startup, The Black Founders Hackathon Tour @ Black Colleges hits Atlanta Friday, February 8th at Hypepotamus.

The 24-hour event is geared toward African-American college students enrolled at historically black colleges and universities in the Atlanta area who want to:

  • Network and receive mentoring
  • Learn more about mobile app development and the startup culture
  • Group up with other attendees to create a mobile app in 24 hours
  • Win cash & prizes

If addition to competing in the event, sponsors will be in the house looking for talent to possibly join their teams as interns or full-time employees. Even if you don’t know how to code and just want to get involved with the movement (Like I do), all students at any university are welcome to attend (I’m a little too old #Womp).

  • Hope it was a good event. Any followup?

    • It was pretty nice. Our kids do need more exposure to events like these, because several of them did not know what to expect and came unprepared. But definitely a good start.
