Tonight on the Dealmaker Zone I chat with Chike Ukaegbu, Founder of Startup52, NYCs first inclusive-diversity focused tech accelerator. His mission is to build an ecosystem of diverse founding teams that fosters global innovation.
An ex-Colin Powell Leadership Fellow on Public Policy, his research and work has largely focused on engagement, development and economic empowerment through tech, entrepreneurship and education in under-served communities.
As an educator, Chike’s efforts and dedication to youth development continues to engineer the successful transition of youth from disconnection to entrepreneurship or higher education.
In the past, Chike has also been a guest contributor on HuffPost Live TV segments, as well as a Journal and Book Reviewer for the Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) system. He served as a consultant/recurring speaker on Organizational Branding and Marketing at the Center for Nonprofit Success’s Lecture Series.
