Founded in 2016, Colorintech was started with the belief that a more inclusive tech industry is better for products, innovation, employees and leads to a larger generational impact when it comes to wealth creation and closing opportunity gaps.
Feeling frustrated with being one of a few black individuals in tech, Silicon Valley tech executive Dion McKenzie and ex-Googler Ashleigh Ainsley teamed up to create a nonprofit that would help to increase the number ethnic minorities entering the UK tech workforce and inspire thousands of past and future leaders join the movement.
Colorintech is focused on one mission - to make Europe the most inclusive tech hub in the world.
Since then, Colorintech has been focused on one mission - to make Europe the most inclusive tech hub in the world. We do this by building programs that create access to some of the world’s most innovative companies for ethnic minorities.
