We introduce college students of color into the Finance and Accounting sector. We provide internships in: Hedge Funds, Investment Banking, Wealth management, Back office financial management. We are expanding into accounting firms and venture capital firms.
We recruit these students mostly from Community colleges and enhance their skill sets through industry speakers, mentoring, financial education, & business etiquette training.
The Financial Services and Accounting fields are severely lacking diversity and inclusion from minorities especially from African American and Latino backgrounds. As our society becomes a majority minority country these industries fail to reflect this new dynamic. We are choosing to make a difference in our community.
I want our email Marketing campaign to help us spread the message of TSS and attract more funders
