The LIT Team


Ben Juarez


  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

After formally training as a public policy analyst (masters degree) Ben decided he also wanted to learn programming. So, he self taught on the side, as he worked full time in politics and policy.


Eventually Ben started teaching middle and high school students how to code. Then, switched to a career in teaching programming with i.c. stars Milwaukee.


After 2 years of training and mentoring the amazing interns of i.c. stars, he arrived at a Fortune 500 company’s innovation team, where his learning was taken to the next level.


Despite the great people he worked with, he decided that his true passion was to innovate on his own, with his own team, so he decided to focus on his startup, Like|Minded, and Latinos In Tech full time...and maybe a video game or two on the side.

Mental Health Day with CORE El Centro

Take a well deserved break by joining us, and participating in the services CORE El Centro will be providing.

This event is not so much about networking as much as it is taking care of oneself. There will be little interaction and lots of great wellness services.
