The Black Is Tech Conference is an event platform that connects black and minority tech professionals, students and entrepreneurs and provides access to resources for these groups.

Our 2019 Inaugural Conference brought over 1000 attendees. 100+ companies were present including 40+ black and minority owned startups showcasing at our Exhibition hall. The event brought over 40+ speakers covering topics from Entrepreneurship to AI, all in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, NYC.

For 2020, We want to bring an even better experience to the big apple. With an expected attendance of 2500, 60+ speakers and over 250+ companies expected to be present, the Conference will be an experience of value. We plan to provide recruiting opportunities, workshops, networking, a lot of learning and so much more in the 2 days of the Conference.
