    How to Start a Business: Rinse and Repeat

    Anyone, no matter how young or old, can be an entrepreneur. You just need to have ideas, perseverance, and an iterative framework to test your ideas until you find one that makes money (ie. creates revenue).

    By Jennifer Arguello (Co-Founder, Latino Startup Alliance)

    People of color will become the majority in the United States by the year 2040. Some have noted that the minority achievement gap will not be closed that same year, and started a technology program to actually do something about it.

    This is my story of how I almost won $20k.

    By Hadiyah Mujhid (Co-Founder, Black Founders)

    This weekend I participated in the AT&T Mobile HTML5 Hackathon. I had very mixed feelings in the beginning about my participation for multiple reasons.

    The first reason in which I was against participating is because I have a number of uncompleted apps from previous hackathons that I have yet to complete, and I didn’t want another incomplete project. But the top prize was $20k.

    You need only put your ear to the ground these days to catch conversation about Silicon Valley’s diversity challenge as it relates to women, blacks, latinos and other underrepresented groups knocking at the door of what many consider “the land of milk and honey.”

    Although I was born in the Bay Area, I grew up in the rural town of Bakersfield, California. I would say that an entrepreneurial spirit has always run throughout my family – which is probably why I find myself in the role of Co-Founder and CEO of HustleAndCode.

    Several years ago, I teamed up with my son
