Teens in Tech Incubator Comes to a Successful Close

Teens in Tech Incubator Comes to a Successful Close

The first Teens in Tech Incubator was an incredible success, but I am sad to see it come to an end. The program took 6 teams of teenagers, ranging from 14 to 19 years old, and challenged them to launch a tech startup in only 8 weeks. What they were able to accomplish in such a short amount of time was truly amazing!

Breakout Mentors provided a plan for technical mentorship for the company founders, who ranged in expertise from having no programming experience to already having coded a working product. The terrific team of mentors provided instruction in HTML, CSS, PHP, and Javascript, but much of the learning was accomplished by the teenagers tinkering on their own. At the end of the 8 weeks, the teams launched their products at the Teens in Tech Conference!

Here is a short video of the teams explaining what their companies are all about:
