Hack the CD is a collective of self determined social innovators focused on the creation of sustainable, equitable growth through design, entrepreneurship, and technology. Right now we're focused on answering the question, "How might we create fertile ground for the African American community in Seattle to grow with the city's current tech boom?"

But the vision doesn't stop there, we're just getting started! Over the next 3-5 years we aim to incubate new businesses, advance research, and create scalable models that help historically underserved communities around the world thrive in the 21st century.
