At the Lowenstein Sandler Tech Group’s VentureCrush event on October 1, Regina Gywnn, Co-Founder of Black Women Talk Tech (BWTT), presented the Black Women Talk Tech & Talk Tech Association’s The New Face of a Founder research report (visit the report here: https://bit.ly/2S4xmzc).
Black Women Talk Tech & Talk Tech Association’s The New Face of a Founder research report uncovers Black women as the next billion-dollar founder. The researchers surveyed 671 self-identifying Black women tech founders to learn more about their businesses and investment journeys‒making this the largest report on Black women tech founders. The data and stories of the Black women founders surveyed inform actionable recommendations to help anyone in the tech ecosystem‒investors, policymakers, thought leaders, journalists, founders, and others–learn more about the work Black women do, the funding they don’t get, and how to overcome the tech sector’s poor diversity record.
