TWO GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR BLACK OWNED/OPERATED TECH BUSINESSES

OPPORTUNITY #1

iBlack is working with Tech Cocktail to identify, highlight and promote black owned technology businesses. Tech Cocktail is one of the leading tech focused organizations in the area and they provide information, host events, and have assisted startups and entrepreneurs to find employees, co-founders, funding, and even acquirers.


WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

Tech Cocktail is a co-organizer of DCWeek which is a week long tech festival focused on bringing together over 10,000 designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and social innovators from DC and around the world.

We are working with Tech Cocktail to showcase several black owned tech related businesses at the Tech Cocktail Mixer during DCWeek. The Tech Cocktail Mixer is the largest monthly technology event in the DC area and each event showcases 5 - 20 tech startups, demonstrating their latest work to hundreds of tech influencers.

So, how do you take advantage of this great opportunity to promote your business? Simply complete the application form at: http://googlplus.info...­. Don't worry about the application deadline listed on the form. The deadline has been extended until October 8th for people submitting applications through our link.

What type of businesses are we looking for? The criteria is that it's something technology related - usually consumer-web (but not always) - not just a website or online community, but something unique. It could also be even be an app, something mobile related, etc. If you're interested, be sure to complete the online application as soon as possible to secure your spot in the showcase.


OPPORTUNITY #2

iBlack will be hosting events during DCWeek as well. We will be hosting a tech workshop on Saturday, November 3rd featuring in depth panel discussions with experienced venture capitalists, top corporate tech focused and securities lawyers, and successful entrepreneurs who have gone through the startup to exit process.

Be sure to look out for more information regarding this workshop by joining our email list at: www.iblack.biz and/or our Facebook fanpage at: http://www.facebook.c...­
