Who gets to be an Entrepreneur?

The team at First Pitch has been thinking about the question "Who gets to be an entrepreneur?" We believe that given the right skills, experience, support systems and network, we can expand the field of entrepreneurship to students across the spectrum. This summer, in partnership with Upperline Code, 20 students will participate in an immersive technical and entrepreneurial bootcamp. First Pitch students will learn the principles of software engineering by building real-world web applications, and will practice and deliver their pitches to top tech industry professionals.

Upperline, Coding Programs for High School Students, NYC

Upperline School of Code builds and runs fun, rigorous, and collaborative programming classes for high school students.  We teach students how to code through our immersive summer courses, workshops, and after-school programs throughout the New York City area.  Our students learn to build web applications using the same tools that professionals are using throughout the tech industry (Ruby, HTML, CSS, SQL, Javascript, iOS development). We push our students to build real apps, learn coding best-practices, and get exposure to the technology sector through guest speakers and company visits.
