We have a hunch that by creating a space where kids gain the tools and connections necessary to launch into the field of programming web applications, in the long run -- kids are going to be inspired to use their creativity for anything from creating great products, to solving local community issues through technology to taking charge of their destiny.
In terms of connections, we mean the necessay exchange of past experiences from people already out there launching a startup that is filling a global social need. To empower youth that likely don"t know much about the programming and tech start up scene, to meet people like @AndresBarreto from Onswipe, Alex Torrenegra (@Torrenegra) and our other tech entrepreneurs is essential to accompany tools with a vision.
We plan to do all of this in two months in Vive Lab at Ruta N, the main innovation center of Medellin, three times a week, covering transport and food for all participants and speakers that come all the way out to Medellín for the program.
