MISSION & VISION

The tech industry is the engine of innovation and job growth, yet only 1% of VC-backed startups have a Black or Latino person on the founding team. All Star Code creates economic opportunity by developing a new generation of entrepreneurs who have the tools they need to succeed in technology.
