Blacktech Week is a week long cultural celebration that highlights cutting-edge technologies and entrepreneurial innovation. My first attendance to this event was in 2016 and was very new to the tech scene. This year in February, the focus was a weekend dedicated to funding. The great part of this weekend was being able to just soak up “game” and not focus on pitching my startup.
