C4Q is transforming the tech industry by empowering underserved, low-income, and underrepresented communities with skills, networks, and opportunity. We believe that creating a more inclusive tech community with a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences will strengthen the industry and fuel the growth of local Queens and NYC tech companies. Despite the incredible promise of the tech sector as a vehicle to the middle class, significant barriers to entry engender a lack of access to these growing opportunities.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue a career in tech, and we work to:
Increase awareness and understanding of opportunities in the tech industry for low-income communities and non-traditional populations
Make our tech community more ethnic and gender balanced
Increase talent from public universities, community colleges, and non-college graduates
Help us build the most inclusive tech community.
