Re:Coded teams up with Techstars Foundation to support refugee tech entrepreneurs

Techstars is committed to being an action-driven leader in creating an inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem. One important way they do this is through the Techstars Foundation. 

The Techstars Foundation’s mission is to develop and support underrepresented entrepreneurs by providing nonprofit organizations with grants and access to the Techstars Network. We foster an inclusive entrepreneurship ecosystem that embraces aspiring underrepresented entrepreneurs around the world of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, ages, physical abilities, and neurodiversity. 

Re:Coded is incredibly proud to partner with the Techstars Foundation to support aspiring refugee entrepreneurs in Turkey who are looking to kickstart their tech businesses. Marcello Bonatto, Re:Coded’s Co-Founder said, “for the last couple of years, we’ve worked with dozens of refugees in Turkey who have tech business ideas but struggle to get their dream off the ground. Now, Re:Coded is delighted to work with Techstars to bring refugee-led startups to life.”
