Over the past year BUILDUP has held several events focused on entrepreneurship, tech culture and venture capital but as Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay Area tech companies reflects staggeringly low representation of employees and tech founders across gender and racial categories in contrast to the diverse population of the world, we wanted to do more.

Today BUILDUP is excited to announce a five week, six series technical workshop series with Google, Twitter, UBER, Galvanize and TechCrunch starting May 26th. The BUILDUP Workshop Series is designed to educate and prepare individuals from underrepresented groups for career paths in technology. The workshop series co-led by Google, TechCrunch, Uber, Twitter and Galvanize is targeted at individuals considering new careers in tech, launching a startup or building a product, or interested in attending a code school. The series is also geared toward junior engineers, developers and designers, college students, or entrepreneurs looking to sharpen their current tech skill set.
