Bridging the Economic and Digital Divide in Memphis, Tennessee
We are a proud supporter of CodeCrew, an innovative and game-changing non-profit based in Memphis, Tennessee. CodeCrew empowers youth and adults from communities who are underrepresented in the tech world to be innovators and producers through practical, hands-on computer science education and training.
It is led by Meka Egwuekwe, a visionary entrepreneur dedicated to creating a strong Black middle class by teaching computer science and coding to children and adults. Graduates from CodeCrew’s training program see their income rise from approximately $15K to $50K annually, without a college degree. The impact Egwuekwe and his team are creating is deep and real.
"I am so thankful to Jim Golden and the WorldQuant Predictive team for believing in our mission and vision at CodeCrew. Our growing partnership is not only transforming the lives of burgeoning young tech producers, but also keeping our nation competitive through equipping and elevating new levels of highly qualified and diverse talent."
– Meka Egwuekwe, Executive Director
