Budding Brooklyn Tech Founder Provides opportunities to marginalized New York Youth

eTradeWire News/10645509
eTradeWire -- In times where securing remote opportunities for marginalized youth seems dwindling, budding tech entrepreneur Kofi Korang of Solid As Gold Consulting (https://solidasgoldconsulting.com/) has been working with New York State education organizations to help physically challenged and marginalized youths across NYC boroughs to gain leadership and soft-tech skills. As a founder who comes from humble beginnings, he recalls having to jump through many hurdles, including being reminded on many occasions that there were few  African/Black founders like him in the industry.

"It came to my attention that some students with a slight disability or deprived economic backgrounds found it difficult to secure internship opportunities across the city, I told my team to structure remote training and internships for students across the state and soon nationwide. One of the reasons I founded my company was to be able to provide valuable opportunities that I didn't have growing up. We look forward to growing and brInging along as many marginalized youth as possible".

  • SAGOS DISTRO (https://sagosdistro.com/), a global record label, worldwide music distribution aggregator with in-built CRM software and promotions toolkit
