Description

Morgan DeBaun, Founder and CEO of Blavity, will share her insights on how she was able to successfully navigate Silicon Valley and leverage her professional experience to launch the largest media startup and lifestyle brand for Black millennials.

Morgan is a serial startup entrepreneur, who's passions have long been focused on building technology at the intersection of creativity and culture. Since launching Blavity in 2014, Morgan has scaled the organization to be one the fastest growing digital media startups, currently operating five brands: Blavity, 21Ninety, Travel Noire, Shadow and Act, and Afrotech. She is one of only 20 Black women to raise over $1 million in venture funding, and her list of accolades include being named Black Innovator of the Year by SXSW, a finalist for 2016 TechCrunch’s Founder of the Year, as well as inclusion in Ebony Magazine's 2017 Power 100.

This event is co-sponsored by the Boston University Dean of Students Office, Boston University Questrom School of Business, and Next Wave in Business.
