National nonprofit organization, Blacks in Technology (BIT) will host their inaugural conference in the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area from October 11th-13th. The BIT Conference is the 2018 premiere event for black professionals to network in the tech industry. Events include over 25 workshops, networking parties, a Tech Fest and career fair, pitch competition, city excursion tour, and more! As the Twin Cities is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing hotspots for innovation, BIT will highlight the region’s tech, business, and political climate while inviting the nation's leading companies to share expertise and source talent.
BIT Founder Greg Greenlee commented, “We listened to our community and we are excited to finally bring them a conference that they can be proud of as engineers, innovators, and entrepreneurs. The BIT conference is a celebration of the women and men who not only helped to build our incredible community, but are also doing amazing work in the technology industry that would normally go unrecognized. We are compelled as an organization, to provide a space and a platform for them, so their voices are elevated and heard. The Blacks In Technology Inaugural Conference is here to deliver the ultimate tech conference experience. This 3 day event is celebrating black tech-xcellence.”
With expectations of over 1000 attendees, BIT will provide an interactive and innovative platform to increase and recognize the representation of black women and men in the tech industry.
