Description

Program Overview

Join us at the Creating a Digital Wakanda: Bringing Black Wall Street Online event powered by Katika. Many minorities businesses lack the resources to engage and use technology to benefit their businesses. At this event we will be discussing what existing technologies are on the market to help black-owned businesses and which platforms are best suited for your specific type of business. The discussion will also include ways entrepreneurs of color can strategize and leverage technology to build their businesses and brands.

This event is for startups, existing businesses, and people that know they need to utilize technology more for their business but may not know how to do so. The 2 hour event will include a panel discussion of seasoned minority technology experts as well as one on one scheduled coaching sessions for entrepreneurs. The Katika mobile app and platform will be showcased and demonstrated as a resource for attendees to use for their businesses.
