ACCESS & OPPORTUNITY IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY

The Internet abolishes divides, and it is an equalizer and has brought down the cost of innovation and doing business substantially. It has fundamentally transformed the way we live, work and communicate. As long as technology education is accessible, it can be a great equalizer in ensuring that urban communities can compete.

Dhat Stone Academy’s state-of-the-art technology park offers free access to computer coding boot camp courses, science and makers labs equipped with 3D printers, machine shops, and entrepreneurship classes to help youngsters start up locally owned
​high-tech companies.

INVESTING IN BLACK BRILLIANCE

The real power of the Dhat Stone Technology Park lies in connecting technology, innovation, collaboration, and investors. It's a unique financial opportunity for those who would like to invest in black tech startups. It's a stake in future African American brilliance and creativity which will produce new and innovative services, technologies, and mobile apps which could have an estimated potential revenue of billions of dollars per year by 2016.


DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH

Dhat Stone High Tech Learning Academy works in conjunction with Priority Housing to target an audience of at-risk youth in Compton and areas nearby so they may someday join and compete with top ranking tech leaders to industry experts and successful entrepreneurs. Dhat Stone High Tech Learning Academy is a hands-on lab for young urban minority students. The organization is the first of its kind to feature Hackathons and a TechLab serving Compton.

CREATING TOMORROW’S TECH COMPANIES

Dhat Stone Academy's ultimate goal is to build 5 state-of-the-art technology buildings made of stone, glass and steel on a 20 acre piece of property in Compton, California. There, we will create a technology park to groom budding black entrepreneurs and inventors to jumpstart future tech companies which will produce e-commerce businesses, mobile apps, green technology, drones technology, digital music, apparel, art and design, and cloud-based services. 

MENTORSHIP AND COACHING

Dhat Stone Business Accelerator will mentor young entrepreneurs with professional writing, marketing, and pitching to investors. Our In-house legal and accounting services mean young entrepreneurs can focus on sharpening their skills as leaders.
