Apple says the program is designed to give developers the opportunity to improve their existing applications through hands-on technology labs, personalized code-level guidance from Apple experts and engineers, and mentoring from top Apple leaders.

“These incredible app creators and business leaders embody the entrepreneurial spirit that is so ingrained in the black community,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, including Racial Equity and Justice. “Their work already demonstrates the power of coding to build a better world, and we are honored to support them as they blaze a trail that we know many more will follow.”

Additionally, Apple is partnering with New York-based venture capital firm Harlem Capital to offer guidance and mentorship to participants. This partnership is part of Apple’s $ 100 million Racial Equity and Justice Initiative, which is focused on advancing racial equity in education, the economy, and the criminal justice system.

Apple’s press release includes a “Meet the Developers” section highlighting participants.
