Remembering from Whence We Came

All of us here at Centered received help from mentors as we were developing our careers. One of our foundational principles is to help the next generation of creative minds on their rise through the ranks.

We work in partnership with a number of hackathons by providing all participants with free access to Centered during the hackathon. We also gift winners with a free one-year subscription to Centered, as well as offer a 50% discount to students.
