Business+Tech and the Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club are hosting a Black History Month event dedicated to closing the racial, gender, and monetary gaps that exist in the tech, venture capital, and entrepreneurship industries. 

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 like Marques Zak, Director of Cultural Platforms at American Express & Isaiah Andrew, Head of Design at Nike Virtual Studies

  • Interactive workshops with leaders from big tech like Rachel Brooks, Head of Product Equity at Instagram

  • Innovative pitches in front of leaders like Monica Wheat, Managing Director of Techstars Detroit Accelerator, Powered by JP Morgan

This event is your opportunity to close the gap in your knowledge and know-how in the world of tech, venture capital, and entrepreneurship. Make sure to tell a friend and bring a friend, as you won’t want to miss out on this first-of-its-kind experience.
