More than 100 UNCF HBCU Innovation Summit fellows gathered in Silicon Valley courtesy of UNCF in late 2017. Over four intense days, fellows engaged with tech CEOs, tech recruiters and connected with tech-industry peers they will join upon graduation. Participants went behind-the-scenes at YouTube, Pure Storage, eBay, Adobe, Net App, Walmart, Veritas, Yelp, Salesforce, Uber, Workday, and Twitter campuses. A number of the fellows received job offers directly on the spot.
