Black Girls Code
Business Genre: , ,
Short Business Description: Founder: Kimberly Bryant
Long Business Description:

Message from the Founder:
When I was first introduced to computer programming, as a freshman in Electrical Engineering, Fortran and Pascal were the popular languages for newbies in computing and the Apple Macintosh was the new kid on the block. I remember being excited by the prospects, and looked forward to embarking on a rich and rewarding career after college.

But I also recall, as I pursued my studies, feeling culturally isolated: few of my classmates looked like me. While we shared similar aspirations and many good times, there’s much to be said for making any challenging journey with people of the same cultural background.

Much has changed since my college days, but there’s still a dearth of African-American women in science, technology, engineering and math professions, an absence that cannot be explained by, say, a lack of interest in these fields. Lack of access and lack of exposure to STEM topics are the likelier culprits.

By launching Black Girls Code, I hope to provide young and pre-teen girls of color opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming at a time when they are naturally thinking about what they want to be when they grow up.

That, really, is the Black Girls Code mission: to introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders, coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.

Imagine the impact that these curious, creative minds could have on the world with the guidance and encouragement others take for granted.

Capital Square (Nigeria)
Long Business Description:

This is CapitalSquare, a membership-based coworking space in Lekki, Lagos.

We provide a relaxed environment for independent professionals to work, collaborate, and learn from each other. We know that not everyone wants or needs to work in a conventional office, and working at home gets lonely (and sometimes distracting), so we decided to create a workspace that's work-friendly, pocket-friendly and people-friendly.

We're building a community of professionals from every area of business, who like, support, and want to learn from one another, and we're making CapitalSquare a great place to make friends and grow your business.

Our goal? To make it easier for you to achieve yours.

Short Business Description: Founders: Jody Aufrigtig , Nick Ferguson, BArry Harlen, Paul Dalton
Long Business Description:

The Daddy's Dragons brings you a Business School and Incubator.  Business incubation has been around a long time but in recent times these are springing up all over the place, answering to a real need for small business support. These start-up hubs offer expert mentorship, resources like office space, management and skills transfer and even seed money, typically in exchange for an equity partnership in small (or theoretical) companies. It’s far better to have a smaller share in a huge success, than complete ownership in something small and your chances of success are greatly increased when you associate with the Dragons. More importantly, early-stage investors are paying close attention too.
