­ƒÜ¿ On Friday, February 17th from 10 to 4 PM, in Blau Colloquium, Business+Tech and the Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club will partner to host a Black History Month event dedicated to closing the racial, gender and monetary gaps that exist in the tech, venture capital, and entrepreneurship industries.

­ƒÜÇ Leveraging experiences and connections made at the AFROTECH conference in Austin last November, this first-of-its-kind collaboration will provide participants with an insight into what these non-traditional career fields look like from the perspective of historically overlooked professionals. This experience will offer a full-day of:

-Interesting discussions with leaders from startups and big tech companies Marques Zak, Director, Cultural Platforms, American Express & Isaiah Andrew, Head of Design at Nike Virtual Studies

-Interactive workshops with leaders from big tech like Rachel Brooks

-Innovative pitches in front of leaders like Monica Wheat

ÔÜí´©Å Specifically, after the lunchtime break, we will host an hour-long behind-the-scenes start-up pitch experience from the perspective of a founder and investor from 1-2 PM. Interested founders will have the opportunity to pitch a venture they are working on in 10 minutes, with 5 minutes of Q&A from our special guests in the world of VC/Entrepreneurship.

­ƒôêThis entire experience is your opportunity close the gap in your knowledge and know-how in the world of tech, venture capital, and entrepreneurship. Tell a friend and bring a friend! You don't want to miss-out on this first-of-its-kind experience.
