Florida organizations engage minorities with tech initiative


Ahead of this year’s Blacktech Weekend, two organizations are working to integrate South Florida’s minority community into the region’s growing startup ecosystem.

Florida Vocational Institute, a U.S. Department of Education-approved coding bootcamp, and CareerSource South Florida, a public-private partnership aimed at training and employing those seeking work, will spearhead Miami’s “TechHire Initiative” in Overtown.
