I had a great day geeking out with the Baltimore New Economy Tech Initiative Collaboration team. We came together to discover, dream, and rediscover programs that will ultimately drive the citizens of Baltimore on a holistic tech entrepreneurship path.
The challenge: create a program for 18 – 30-year-olds in the Baltimore, Maryland area that will teach financial literacy and tech entrepreneurship. The things to consider: the digital divide is not about people who don’t’ have access to technology. Rather, many in underserved communities do not know how to use the technology they have to create real change.
The conversation is just getting started, but it was a wonderful day of great ideas, passion and innovation. Special thanks to the Baltimore Mayor’s Office on Information Technology for pulling us all together.
