Black Tech Ecosystems: A proposed framework for defining, assessing and developing Black tech ecosystems   

February 2017

This was the first in a series of original research projects we are pursuing to assess and develop Black tech ecosystems. By identifying the elements that make BTEs thrive while measuring how cities around the world compare, we are championing tech empowerment and expanding opportunity. The report is the product of a research collaboration between Black Tech Mecca leaders and staff, the State of the Black Tech Ecosystem (SBTE) advisory board, and the research team at the Nathalie P. Voorhees Center for Neighborhood and Community Improvement at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
