Apple has launched an Entrepreneur Camp for Latin founders. Previous camps have focused on women and Black founders. Participants will receive one-on-one code-level guidance from Apple experts and engineers to help their apps. They also receive mentorship, inspiration, and insights from the company’s leaders.
