Based in Charleston, this startup aims to help women in technology by addressing female employee turnover rates. Founded by Carolyn Finch, PowerHouse offers education and experience for women having a difficult time entering the tech industry and keeping long-term careers.
Through PowerHouse, you can learn to code and join their development team once trained. For technology companies, they also help hire developers. With an objective to "create the ultimate culture of growth and learning that develops excellent talent who can harness their passion to build the best solutions possible for our partners and clients," the new venture focuses on providing continuous support in addition to training and work experience.
Even though many initiatives exist to include women in technology, the gender gap remains and PowerHouse gives practical solutions.
