The Colorwave eight-week program is designed to equip early career Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals with the training they need to navigate and thrive in the startup and tech ecosystem.

Over eight weeks, Colorwave fellows learn best practices and create personalized game plans for their wealth and equity via employment at a VC-backed private tech startup.

 

Fellows will commit to 4-6 hours of weekly work and participate in intimate speaking events with leading VCs, entrepreneurs, salary negotiation experts, activists, career coaches, and other industry leaders.

Program Overview

WEEKS 1-5: HOW IT WORKS

Fellows learn how to operate the tech and startup ecosystem from an insider’s perspective, advocate for themselves to generate wealth, and navigate a startup as the ‘only one’ or ‘the first’ Black, Latinx, or Native American employee.

WEEKS 6-7: CREATING YOUR GAME PLAN

Fellows create a plan to secure a job or maximize wealth in their current role at a VC-backed private tech startup and then present that plan to their peers and receive feedback.

WEEK 8: END OF COHORT CELEBRATION AND OFFBOARDING

Colorwave connects fellows to interview opportunities at leading VC-backed private companies.

Each Colorwave fellow class will be divided into community groups that will serve as a support system during and well beyond the program.
