Our Genius Founders have completed the Technology Phase in our Alumni Venture Seed Fund. This phase provided our young founders with the opportunity to learn how to pick their technology stack and source developers. In addition, our Geniuses were trained on how to monitor, report, and track bugs on technical projects.

“I will start building my design doc with my technology phase coach so that I can start seeing how I wish to develop my app.”

“These last few sessions have encouraged me to explore APIs and to figure out ways to use resources that we already have to make our product.”

Julian Wilson, OAK6 Hidden Genius Alum

“In this phase, I am doing more research about databases to determine which type fits my business the best.”
