Located right here in SW ATLANTA, All-Female HBCU SPELMAN COLLEGE is producing just as many black female founders of tech start-ups as STANFORD UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY of NORTH CAROLINA: CHAPEL HILL, and several other top-tier schools!!!
YALE UNIVERSITY Graduate/TECH PROJECT START-UP Founder KATHRYN FINNEY founded a tech investment initiative for black and Hispanic women dubbed digitalundivided, and in 2015, that initiative launched the research effort Project Diane.
“And here we are tied with Stanford University. I think that’s extremely good news for Spelman College and the women that come here.What I see is a campus that is completely and totally vested in their success."
“Expanding educational opportunity is a critical objective for Stanford, and we work to advance it in many ways."
“Most of us don’t have the luxury to be able to take on that kind of risk."-CCG
