We create programs that connect top Black and Latino/a tech talent with companies, funders, and fellow technologists committed to diversity and inclusion.
Our programming is focused on supporting emerging tech talent. Our flagship program, the CODE2040 Fellows Program, is targeted at college- and graduate-level students with excellent technical skills who are excited by the opportunity to spend a summer working with the best in the industry in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Our newest student-focused program, the Technical Applicant Prep Program (TAP), is for students and young professionals looking to get the scoop on what they need to do to land top internships and full-time jobs in tech companies and departments around the country.
CODE2040 is also working with emerging entrepreneurs through our new CODE2040 Residency program, powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. And through both our existing programs and custom engagements, we work with tech companies from startups to industry leaders to craft unique, impactful partnerships and initiatives that will help them attract, hire, and retain diverse talent.
See an overview of our programs below.
The CODE2040 Fellows program
CODE2040's flagship program places top performing Black and Latino/a college level computer science students from around the country in an intensive summer career accelerator in the San Francisco Bay Area. Students intern at top tech companies and participate in a series of career building sessions on evenings and weekends.

Breaking into the tech sector requires not just skills, but the experience, confidence, and connections to apply them. We created TAP so that students and young professionals could find the tools, insight, and resources they need to get that first, next, or best job in the tech sector. Coming soon, direct access to opportunities at our partner companies. Read more about TAP and find out how to participate here.
The CODE2040 residency, powered by Google for entrepreneurs
CODE2040 and Google for Entrepreneurs are teaming up to support outstanding Black and Latino/a tech entrepreneurs in a year-long Residency program. Our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) will spend a year launching a company as well as connecting communities of color to their local entrepreneurial ecosystem. This program will be piloted in three cities in 2015: Austin, Chicago, and Durham with partners Capitol Factory, 1871, and American Underground, respectively.
