Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Applications for Sabio's first cohort opened in June 2013 with the first-round of fellows accepted in September 2013 for the 6-month program.
The inaugural class hit the ground running by selecting a project submitted by DiversiTech, a national organization whose headquarters is in the Washington, DC area. The next few months, Fellows will take DiversiTech's concept through development with an anticipated launch date in the first quarter of 2014.
Though details are being closely guarded, the project promises to continue both organizations' mission of building inclusion in the tech and entrepreneurship ecosystems. Specifically, the deliverable is expected to be an interactive tool for STEEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Mathematics) organizations, nationally. DiversiTech founder and CEO, Christine Johnson noted, "While the project we submitted for development will be of benefit to the STEEM pipeline nationally, the biggest win for us is supporting the Fellows' growth as developers".
Sabio's founders, Gregorio Rojas and Liliana Aide Monge, will lead the boot-camp and developer training through the course of the program.
“We are happy to enter this next chapter of Sabio's mission, which is to diversify the technology sector with talented and motivated men and women from all walks of life. Collaborating with DiversiTech is a natural fit for our organization,” Liliana Aide Monge, Sabio Cofounder.
