BTM is a data-driven think tank dedicated to addressing the most critical issues impacting how tech ecosystems serve black tech communities.
Make the power and potential of technology accessible to every black child, entrepreneur, and professional one community at a time.
Create thriving tech ecosystems designed to connect, measure, and direct local resources to empower black tech practitioners across the globe.
We do this by:
CuratING and bringING data to life
We collect and synthesize meaningful data around the black tech ecosystem. Our first research study proposes a structure we can use to define the Black tech ecosystem, and a framework we can use to assess and develop Black tech communities in regions around the U.S.
Using insights from the data, we connect disparate elements of the local tech ecosystem by engaging private and public resources and initiatives to create sustainable change. We partner with local government, academic, and private institutions to create proprietary data pipelines that quantify tech innovation within the black community.
