Message From Our Founder

I am passionate about increasing the participation of minority communities in the high-tech industry as a means of solving racial income disparities in Minnesota. I want our youth to change their mindset from being just consumers of technology to being creators of technology. And I want Minnesota to be the best state in the country with the highest percentage of diverse workforce in the high tech sector.

Hussein Farah - Founder & Executive Director, New Vision Foundation
