The path towards building one of the largest American organizations dedicated to technology education.
18Tech Ventures was started when the founders of HarkerHacks, Nikhil Sharma and Arnav Joshi, realized the incredible potential of younger students when provided with the right resources. They wanted to make such resources widely available by running similar events across the globe, and, as a result, they decided to create 18Tech Ventures. In late 2018, they decided to create the Startup track of 18Tech, which helps students build upon their ideas, as a way to incentivize students to continue working on their products even after the 24-hour duration of any given hackathon.
