At Black Tech Mecca, we believe that the development of a thriving black tech ecosystem will empower the black community, propel the tech community, and introduce a new competitive advantage for the city. However, a thriving black tech ecosystem will not just appear out of thin air. It must be deliberately and meticulously constructed. Our specific focus is to strengthen connections within the community, quantify collective impact, drive growth and tell the world about it. Join the fun. Join the movement. Come build with us!

Our Vision

To establish Chicago as the vanguard for collaboration and innovation for the black community.

Coming Soon

BTM Ecosystem Network

We are in the process of building a dynamic online community platform that will strengthen connections within the black tech community by re-imagining the way interactions takes place. The first of its kind here in Chicago, the Ecosystem Network will also function as a vital technology tool to help transform Chicago into the “Global Black Tech Mecca.” Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with any new developments, or click below to fill out an interest form to become a beta tester.
