Overview

Code Fever Miami focuses on dramatically shifting the way Black and minority communities engage with, contribute to, and are valued by the innovation sector. We focus on building assets and talent filled spaces within the black community while bridging the innovation gap within the black community and the greater entrepreneurial ecosystem. We gather resources such as training, networks, and funding in order to build these assets and spaces, so that innovation can thrive within the black community. Code Fever Miami seeks to impact youth and adults within low opportunity, high potential communities. Youth programming carries a focus on increasing the number of students pursuing STEM fields, and then equipping them with the fundamental skills required to successfully operate in the STEM industry. Adult programming aims to increase general access and understanding of opportunities in the fields of technology and entrepreneurship. Our adult coding programs support a growing community of like-minded professionals, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists that collaborate and share knowledge in their areas of expertise. Long term success of these programs is two fold: an increased wealth of qualified minorities to fill positions within the technological ecosystem, and an increase in the number of minority ­founded, venture­ backed, high ­growth businesses in the United States.
