DATA RULES EVERYTHING AROUND US

Together with members and leaders from the tech, business and civic communities, the State of the Black Tech Ecosystem is a platform that has been created with one mission in mind: to explore the full potential of the Black tech ecosystem. Filled with essential, nuanced discussions about the development and success of black tech educators, students, professionals and entrepreneurs, the SBTE is a can’t-miss opportunity for the community to mobilize and activate real data driven change, to build more empowered Black tech ecosystems.

Data is king. It rules everything around us and helps build interconnected, thriving tech communities that solve some of the world’s biggest challenges, while creating exciting opportunities. The discussion at #SBTE2017 was anchored in the power data has to shape the growth of the Black tech ecosystem, and the different ways we can leverage it to build innovations for the black community, and the world.
