A unique conference is returning to South Florida as Miami welcomes BlackTech Week. Founded in 2014, this annual event has brought together nearly 3,000 participants, and more than 150 speakers for a mix of entrepreneurship, community building and inclusive innovation as well as actual pitch sessions with venture capital investors they’ve even taught more than 1,500 teens and adults to code through their Code Fever program. These efforts have caught the eye of the Knight Foundation. It invested over a million dollars in Black-Tech week just last year.
