What we're about

What is Blerds Leading Technology (BLT)? BLT is a company created from pain points of multiple Blerds (also known as Black Nerds) in Tech. BLT was created to alleviate the financial pain points of affording certifications, establish school partnerships to provide memberships as scholarships to the top performing tech related students per school, refine the comfortableness of presenting a black owned startup company to venture capitalists, worries of editing a technical resume, stress of not receiving mentoring on how to progress in your technical field of choice, ability to receive unlimited tech training, and the burdens of hiring a business consultant. BLT was created to provide a hub of resources that might not otherwise be afforded to 'us' due to ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.

BLT exists to provide an unconventional hub for all minorities in technology that seek to advance their network and enhance their skills. Our mission is to connect talented individuals with unique opportunities for employment, education, and leadership that might not otherwise be afforded to them due to ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
