Downtown LA is a story that is being written right now. With its collection of neighborhoods, industries, and historic anchors, Downtown LA is rich with opportunity. Los Angeles is currently graduating more engineers than anywhere else in the country, and is primed to become the country's next great tech center. Despite its dynamisms and abundance of resources, the area has been slow to attract and integrate entrepreneurship. When Grid110 came onto the scene in 2015, office space was one of the biggest hurdles. Entrepreneurs were having a hard time finding appropriate office space in Silicon Beach, while Downtown LA ran perennial commercial space vacancies of over 20 percent per the DCBID. Downtown LA now hosts a myriad of co-working and office spaces, accommodating teams from 1 to 50+. For the past two years, Grid110's primary focus was on Fashion Tech startups. Having learned a lot about the critical needs of early stage startups and wanting to scale the program to a broader market, Grid110's current programming is open to any vertical. Grid110's current focus is to to help define clearer pathways for successful entrepreneurship and activate the community in Downtown LA.

Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails. Black Girls CODE has set out to prove to the world that girls of every color have the skills to become the programmers of tomorrow. By promoting classes and programs we hope to grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds. Black Girls CODE's ultimate goal is to provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040.
