So of course, for the fourth year in a row, we are supporting other mission-minded community groups that are putting on meaningful events during the week with modest microgrants to help them succeed. (We announced a call for applications back in February.)
Today we’re proud to announce this year’s five#PTW16 microgrant recipients, and a few plans for what they’re using the funding for.
1. EvoXLabs: The Accessible World Conference
- Braille print of the conference proceedings
2. Hive76: Arcade @ Dilworth and three of their own events
3. #techInColor: Success Hacks: Paving Your Own Way in Tech
- American Sign Language interpreters for the event
5. Coded by Kids: Strengthening your voice in a STEM industry
- Community outreach coordination
Make sure to browse through their events and the other 100+ scheduled for the week while you’re building out your personalized schedule on the Philly Tech Week calendar.
