Black Tech Mecca shares one unifying mission: to build a thriving tech ecosystem that unites and empowers the Black tech community from the inside out, starting with a place close to our hearts–Chicago.
To do this, we connect the Black tech community through our Ecosystem Network, measure progress through comprehensive research, and direct strategies to improve the Black tech ecosystem. A mouthful, but you get it. Our eye is on scalable, high-impact solutions. Join the fun. Join the movement. Come build with us!
Chicago has a historically strong Black identity. It has one of the largest Black populations and fastest-growing tech markets in the U.S. And yet, there’s no current framework to support and nurture a Black tech ecosystem in this city. Untapped potential, much? We thought so, too. So we’re rolling up our sleeves and putting our brains together to use Chicago as the testing ground to develop the framework that unlocks this dormant potential.
