BLKTECHCLT is Charlotte’s first and only inclusive tech hub for entrepreneurs and technologists of color, serving as a one-stop shop for career development, startup resources, and connecting with the top recruiters in Charlotte’s tech community. We aim to make Charlotte’s startup community one of the most diverse in the Southeast by providing programming and leadership within local technology initiatives.
We develop data-driven programming to support the growth of black tech entrepreneurship across the state by hosting skill-building workshops and events, connecting entrepreneurs to mentorship and funding, and connecting corporate employers to a local database of black tech talent.
In 2017 we introduced a microloan fund for entrepreneurs. Today, we host quarterly networking events and a Learning Lab Series led by experienced professionals that offers business and technical skills to entrepreneurs and technologists.
We serve more than 2,000+ Black entrepreneurs and technologists in the Charlotte area.
