Collab for Good
Collab is a Developh initiative that works on impactful collaborations with mission-based groups to build tech-enabled solutions. With our accelerator program, advocates and developers alike work together to ideate, build, and launch meaningful projects for mission, first. We believe that by enabling young founders with technology and helping them sustainably scale their projects — we can get more people working on the real challenges and problems we face today.
By investing in social initiatives, we invest with people who fall in love with problems—not just the product/solution. We're not only educating and accelerating people into the tech scene, we're diversifying it.
Why Collab with Developh?
At Developh, we know that most hackathons bring students together - then set them up for failure. Most projects are abandoned completely after events; engagement is hard. That's why Collab is different: we work directly with organizations who know their problem in and out, and we're designed to engage. By starting with well-defined problems alongside committed teams and connecting them to technology, we're creating a space that's continuously sustained, exciting, and empowering.
Developh is redefining what it means to explore technology. At Collab, we'll be building projects that will have a measurable impact long after the fact; and introducing young people to technology with purpose with the community and support to go with it.
Developh aims to build the most student-friendly accelerator. To accomplish this, we’re investing in our youth who are not only changing the future, but are making a difference today. After 3 years of experimenting with our model, we’ve found that the most successful projects come from people with passion and a cause. We’re connecting creation and making tech - something so pervasive but untapped - more equitable. By giving activists, changemakers, and students a platform to build and impact; we’re traversing social issues, empowering and upskilling the youth, and reshaping what technology means.
For Advocacy Groups
Build on your current initiatives or ideate on new ones in a diverse space of creators, doers, and changemakers. Our accelerator focuses on social good projects led by students; we want to build alongside you. This is just part one of a longer-term collaboration.
Work towards social initiatives, learn new skills, and make an impact. You'll not only work towards your passions (or newfound ones!), you'll get the skills, training, network, and more that you need to succeed in your career — while building up your portfolio and learning.
