Event Details

You are invited to attend the 2nd Annual HUE Tech Summit powered by the Tech Women Network. The summit is designed to educate, elevate, and empower women of color technologists and techpreneurs in the Delaware Valley and beyond. It also is a kick-off event for Philly Tech Week.

In keeping with the HUE “No More Hidden Figures” mantra, the 2019 theme is one word: FORTITUDE.

Keynote Speakers 

Lisa Gelobter

Opening Keynote: Lisa Gelobter, CEO & Co-Founder, tEQuitable

As both a technologist and founder, we consider Lisa Gelobter to be a "hidden figure" whose life embodies not just having FORTITUDE but also using it to propel her career. Her impressive internet technologies portfolio includes work at HULU, BET Networks, and more. Lisa also served as the Chief Digital Service Officer for the Department of Education at the White House under the Obama Administration.


Arlan Hamilton, Founder and Managing Partner, Backstage Capital

Arlan Hamilton is a remarkable entrepreneur who built a venture capital fund from the ground up, while homeless. She is the Founder and Managing Partner of Backstage Capital, a venture capital firm dedicated to minimizing funding disparities in tech by investing in high-potential founders who are people of color, women, and/or LGBT. Started in 2015, Backstage has now invested nearly $5M into 100 startups led by underestimated founders and has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, Inc., Entrepreneur, and Quartz.
