AT&T has been at the center of finding, developing, and investing in high growth and impactful social entrepreneurs. Under the AT&T Foundation, we do this via our AT&T Aspire work where we run a 6 month Accelerator supporting innovative education technology ventures rethinking the learning revolution and bridging our country's skills gap between education and employment. Today AT&T has made 27 investments. 63% women led, 42% minority founded. Five investments are based here in DC.  Join this session to learn more about the AT&T Aspire program.
