Entrepreneurial Diversity in IT

EDIT Overview

EDIT is a free pre-incubator program that works with underserved minorities of East Gainesville to help them launch tech-based businesses. EDIT supports a multi-week workshop on IT, social entrepreneurship, and finance that is designed to support the launch of a small business idea. In order to bring projects into fruition, teams of students, led by a project manager, work with the entrepreneurs to develop technologies envisioned and designed by them into high fidelity prototypes. Each startup has a development team of UF students. The students will gain practical experience in rapid prototyping that will make them stand out and marketable upon graduation.
