More about Black Women Talk Tech:
Black Women Talk Tech (BWTT) was launched after Esosa Ighodaro-Johnson and Regina Gwynn met by chance at a tech conference and shared common ground over the racial disparity they both experienced firsthand in the tech funding world. This collective was started with the mission to identify, support and encourage black women to build the next billion-dollar business.
BWTT’s 5th Annual Roadmap to Billions conference is the only tech conference created by Black female founders for Black female founders and supporters of the community. It showcases the brilliance of Black women building scalable companies while building deep connections and creating real funding opportunities. BWTT is a registered non-profit with regional chapters across the globe, and the conference is now the largest convening of Black female tech entrepreneurs. The success of the organization has also led to the expansion of Black Men Talk Tech and Black Students Talk Tech, as well as the company’s first acquisition of Black Female Founders (BFF).
