Village Capital has partnered up with GIEI with the support of the Sorenson Impact Center to create a one of a kind program bringing their Venture Investment Readiness Awareness Level (VIRAL) Curriculum during Spring 2018.
GIEI took part of the TechStars Global Startup week which was the largest deaf-inclusive Startup Weekend in the world! Rodriguez, who is the Startup Community Manager at the Global Entrepreneurship Network told us his favorite part of the weekend was “witnessing the hearing and deaf interact with one another, breaking barriers and helping different communities come together.”

The Gallaudet Innovation & Entrepreneurship Institute (GIEI) will be a part of this competition, open to teams of deaf and hard of hearing college students showcasing the innovation ideas of entrepreneurial deaf students across the country.
