Our Story


We began as a small group of dedicated and passionate technologists, committed to serving our community. At the heart of our mission was the desire to honor US military veterans by equipping them with skills and knowledge to pursue rewarding civilian careers--all for free.

The first cohort of five veterans was an instant success. Soon, we had others knocking on our doors. In 2012, the growing demand for our program led us to turn our part-time passion project into a full-time operation, known now as Colaberry. We expanded our mission to serve individuals from all backgrounds and have been transforming lives ever since.
