We are excited to be working with four amazing nonprofits this year who have a strong track record serving communities in need in the Bay Area.
YCore is creating a marketing and digital content strategy for CODE2040 to grow their student, mentor, entrepreneur and supporter base for their tech inclusion programs. Code2040’s goal is to ensure that by the year 2040 – when the US will be majority-minority – Blacks and Latino/as are proportionally represented in America's innovation economy as technologists, investors, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs.
We are partnering with Kiva Zip, Kiva’s US-focused small business loan platform, to increase their borrower base in the Bay Area. YCore will develop borrower personas, then research, build and test a direct mail marketing strategy to gain traction within the small business community.
New Door Ventures
YCore is working with Pedal Revolutions, one of New Door’s social businesses and ally partners, to streamline their bike rental service. New Door’s goal is to grow their bike shop business to provide more job readiness opportunities to at-risk youth as part of their long-term goal to serve 2,000 youth by 2020.
Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center
We are partnering with Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center to develop and prototype curriculum to help entrepreneurs access technology-based tools to run and market their businesses. Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center is a nonprofit small business development organization dedicated to helping women and men who traditionally lack access to resources and information to achieve financial self-sufficiency through entrepreneurship.
