Hack.Diversity is an initiative of the New England Venture Capital Association, tackling the underrepresentation of high-skilled minority employees in Boston's innovation economy. Recognizing a distinct talent inefficiency (skilled labor shortage despite large, un-accessed talent pools), NEVCA launched Hack.Diversity to recruit, vet, and place Black and Latino computer science and engineering students into the region's fastest growing companies - with unique training, coaching, and support for both employer and employee throughout the experience. Hack.Diversity aims to buoy the regional innovation economy by effecting a 100% increase in the number of Blacks and Latinos contributing to it.

Unpitch Tech

Unpitch Tech is ​designed to facilitate connections between entrepreneurs ​and investors. It's NOT about delivering an elevator pitch onstage, a "demo day" presentation, or trying to grab a few seconds with a venture capitalist in a conference hallway. ​Instead, Unpitch Tech is a chance to ​have lunch with an ​Angel investor or VC in a casual, no-pressure environment,​ discuss your business​, get meaningful feedback on your ideas, and make connections that will help you get to the next stage.
