  • Day 3

    October 18, 2018

  • Everyone loves attending pitch events and learning about new startups. There is a grandier idea that every startup should be at beck and call of venture capital companies. But, that is far from the truth, being that their success rides on your success as a startup. So, we are changing the power dynamics and introducing a new and improved hot bench. This time, the VCs are on the hot seat and they will be pitching their venture to startups. Attending this event will allow you to learn about VCs and what amenities you should be offered and what you should be looking out for you. Just as investors review and vet startups, you need to vet the people who want to invest in your company. Get Tickets

  • Day 4

    October 19, 2018

  • Fintech (financial technology) & the current low barrier of entry presents a business opportunity for a community that has been historically underserved and underrepresented in financial services. Although the Fintech sector is massive and has continued to grow (over 12 billion in 2017) and the African American community has huge spending power (1.4 trillion by 2020), less than 1 percent of the CEOs of venture-backed tech startups are Black or Latin. More so less than 23% of both populations are considered financially healthy compared to 50% of their White counterparts. We will discuss the possible impact of the Fintech revolution and its accessibility/low barrier of entry for communities of color and possible solutions to the lack thereof. Get Tickets
