Roadmap to billions
From February 28th through March 1st, 2018, back women from across the country will celebrate #BlackGirlMagic in New York City at the 2nd annual Black Women Talk Tech Conference. Will you be one of them?
Speakers and founders from companies including Microsoft, Shea Moisture, Black Enterprise, Skai Blue Media, and more will participate in this year’s conference, designed to tear down roadblocks and promote the accomplishments of women of color in the tech industry.
Over two days, attendees will be treated to expert panels and workshops, keynotes, a $10,000 pitch competition, founder showcases, and performances–giving them a blueprint for building their own multi-million dollar companies.
Black Women are the most educated, fastest growing demographic of entrepreneurs. Together with allies, Black Women Talk Tech seeks to turn our “black girl magic” into the next tech unicorn. The collective of black women tech founders have made it their mission to identify, support and encourage black women to build the next billion-dollar business.
What to expect
The Black Women Talk Tech conference will take place at Microsoft’s New York City headquarters, with two full days of content and activities just for black women.
Day one is made for black women founders, providing them with their personal roadmap to billions. Hand selected by invite or application only, attendees will connect one-on-one with investors and attend sessions that teach them the secrets to raising a million dollars, create a compelling brand story, and how to manage their mental health as entrepreneurs.
On the second day, women are given the green light to promote their business! After learning the “Reality of Reality TV Pitch Shows,” founders will be given the opportunity to pitch their business for a chance at $10,000. An after-party brings the event to a close, where women can connect with investors and fellow business owners.
If you’re interested in starting or growing your business, head to the Black Women Talk Tech Conference. Tickets to this year’s event range in price from Investor ($279) to General ($35), with options for the after party and live stream access.
