The Latinx community in the United States is the second largest ethnic group in America made up of 52 million people. By 2060, over a quarter of the entire U.S. population will be Latinx – that’s about 119M people and over a trillion dollar market that remains untapped – until now!

The weekend of September 29th – Oct 1st, Oakland, Chicago, New York and LA are bringing 400 Latinxs and allies together for 54 hours to learn how to create their own startup. Participants will be mentored by some of the brightest minds in tech, business, and development.

Techstars Startup Weekend Latinx in Tech is supported by amazing local Community Leaders in the four cities and national partners Kapor Center for Social Impact and Techqueria.
