Black Tech Founders and Leaders Share What’s Ahead for the Innovation Economy at The Plug’s Q4 Summit

Black Tech Founders and Leaders Share What’s Ahead for the Innovation Economy at The Plug’s Q4 Summit
Posted By: The Plug on October 16, 2020

What tech trends will shape the next 10 years and how do we ensure they are inclusive and accessible?

The Plug Live Summit, hosted by The Plug, seeks to answer just that. The Q4 Summit: Evolution of Next is a high-level gathering of business leaders, foremost researchers, entrepreneurs, economic development agencies, and investors.

The Summit provides a forum for contextualizing the trends shaping the growing Black innovation economy amid the backdrop of a future-forward technical society, providing a lens for leaders across ecosystems to place big bets.

“With nearly 20 Black tech conferences having been cancelled or postponed amid COVID-19, the switch to virtual offers a new life line for us to connect about an inclusive tech future, says Sherrell Dorsey, founder of The Plug. “Given most tech companies do not audit for diversity, it results in inaccurate measurement of the right opportunities.



We believe The Q4 Summit will provide answers, actions and solutions to do so.”

The Plug will bring together more than two dozen tech founders and leaders for thoughtful discussions, lightning talks, and keynotes distilling inclusive sociotechnical representation across industries such as gaming, biotechnology, cloud computing, clean energy, AI, and ethics.

Featured Speakers include:
Sevetri Wilson, Resilia
Justin Dawkins, Collab Capital
Regine Gilbert, NYU School of Engineering
Seyi Fabode, Varuna
Sheena Allen, CapWay
Kelley O. Cambry, Blue Studios
Anthony Frasier, ABF Creative
Charles Kuykendoll, PlayVS

WHEN:
Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 10:30am to 3:30pm

WHERE:
VIRTUAL - RSVP with code HBCUCONNECT at theplugevolutionofnext.splashthat.com/hbcuconnect
