ABOUT US

EMPOWERING LEADERS AND CREATORS
IN TECHNOLOGY

TECH-Nique's mission is to provide community-centric opportunities in technology that elevate the voices and experiences of underrepresented groups. We equip our participants not just to be consumers of technology, but also game-changing creators and LEADERS in the field.

TECH-Nique is creating an ecosystem of support and opportunity  - after graduating from our programs, participants are invited to become part of the TECH-Nique leadership team, serving as near-peer mentors, facilitators, and role models in the next season of programming.
