African Investors to Speak at 1st-Ever Black Tech Week
Some Miami entrepreneurs want their city to be the U.S. gateway to the African diaspora, and they hope to sell that idea at the inaugural Black Tech Week, scheduled for Feb. 23 to Feb. 28, according to the MiamiHerald.
Black Tech Week Miami aims to change the narrative surrounding the black community and replace it with innovation, technology and creativity, said Derick Pearson. Pearson and his wife, Felecia Hatcher, came up with the idea for Black Tech Week . They are co-founders of Code Fever, an organization that teaches minority youth how to code, create technology and become entrepreneurs.
Black Tech Week will bring investors from Africa and around the world to South Florida to celebrate black innovation with black tech entrepreneurs and innovators, MiamiHerald reports.
