Created through a Talent Training Program

A joint program of Thicket Labs & The Knowledge House, the TechTank mentorship solution was developed through a six-month design fellowship and entrepreneurial training program. Technology students from the Bronx gained experience in strategic planning, problem solving, design and management, and working in teams while helping develop and test the program and product.
