STATE OF THE BLACK
AT THE INTERSECTION OF TODAY’S TECH INDUSTRY AND
TOMORROW’S #STAYWOKE MOVEMENT IS THE STATE
OF THE BLACK TECH ECOSYSTEM (SBTE).
A global summit that connects black tech leaders of
every level, mobilizes data-driven solutions that
evolve our communities, and shapes our future in
tech to pioneer measurable change for the world.
All powered by Black Tech Mecca.
June 6-8, 2018
SBTE was ignited to empower and support Black communities as we actively bridge the digital divide in the tech space and reframe our narrative. Filled with vital, nuanced discussions about the advancement and success of black tech educators, entrepreneurs, students and professionals, the SBTE is your crucial opportunity to activate real data-driven innovations, redefine a new legacy of wealth, and build more empowered Black tech communities, near and far.
This year’s summit is waiting to engage you with all things communal that are advancing Black potential in the tech space. When ready, you can come back here to explore our schedule of events and see what all speaks to the change you are pushing to create within your local community and the world.
SBTE cultivates speakers that recognize the power in collective growth, beyond individual #goals. From notable tech entrepreneurs to data-driven civic innovators to creative technologists, our speakers represent some of the most inclusive-minded visionaries pushing to amplify communal accessibility within the tech sector.
The National DREAM Tour
SBTE has evolved into a global summit that unifies tech practitioners to mobilize change. Along the way we’ve examined that our worldwide network is in large part due to individuals first connecting locally with forward-thinkers. To optimize those connections we are introducing The DREAM Tour, a national expedition where pivotal conversations about tech equity engage local communities and rally solutions that lead up to the global SBTE summit in Summer 2018.

But there are so many more advantages to sponsorship that range from curating main stage sessions at the summit, to accessing our Black Tech Mecca Talent Portal database. Each level of sponsorship starts with you asking “how can my organization fully benefit from the State of the Black Ecosystem?”
The success of SBTE trusts in key community supporters that live by the civic value of democratizing technology for all. These notable partners make our summit possible through media support, strategic implementation, and program leadership, just to name a few areas of support. Our partners are our future.
