ITEP

ITEP is an integrated career development program for college students interested in building a Public Interest Technology (PIT) business career focusing on addressing equity challenges experienced by people with disabilities and underrepresented minorities.

The ITEP Mission

 

The Inclusive Tech Entrepreneurship Program (ITEP) aims to:

  • Cultivate a pipeline of next generation entrepreneurs who will approach structural inequalities faced by people with disabilities and underrepresented minorities to provide solutions combining the knowledge of digital innovation and public policy
  • Stimulate discussion to define PIT entrepreneurship.

 

ITEP will create a career training and placement model targeting college students with disabilities and from underrepresented minorities who are interested in becoming Public Interest Technology (PIT) entrepreneurs. Focusing on challenges specifically related to the disability divide and racial equity, ITEP will provide instruction, mentorships, externships, and business coaching to nurture a new generation of entrepreneurs. It will enable the students to promote the public good utilizing technical knowledge and public policy.

 

We will also work with the project partners to define PIT entrepreneurship. ITEP will provide a unique opportunity for students with disabilities and from underrepresented minorities to launch their startups to address social problems caused by non-inclusive technology.
