Dave, our CEO, and Neha, a software engineer on our applications team, had an awesome time today speaking to the enthusiastic kids of NYC Generation Tech. GenTech is a STEM-focused entrepreneurship summer program launched in partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). GenTech provides underserved NYC high school students with hands-on learning experiences, exposure to the NYC innovation and technology ecosystem, and valuable mentorship opportunities.

We discussed our computer graphics workflow, the advantages of studying CS and being a software engineer in the new economy and pathways to both starting a company and/or working at a tech startup.
The kids were amazing, so inquisitive, so excited about their projects, they inspired us! So much so that we had to take this sweet #selfie after our talk & demo.
