Black Tech Week 2023


Information and registration details
Founded by Felecia Hatcher and Derick Pearson in Miami in 2016, Black Tech Week has been a beacon for Black technology professionals for years. Each year thousands of people, from many different industries, backgrounds, and experience levels gather together to learn, fellowship, and find “home”.

Black Tech Week’s primary purpose is to foster connection and in doing so, move us all forward, collectively.

In 2022, Lightship Foundation has taken the next step. Lightship acquired Black Tech Week and is making it bigger and better than ever. More sessions, more keynotes, more jobs placed, and more FUN! We are partnered with the Cincinnati Music Festival to fuse Black Tech and Black Music for an unforgettable, city-wide experience.
