MEET THE "MILLION DOLLAR PANEL"

Once a quarter, ImBlackInTech features “The Founders Series,” a 60 minute “behind the red curtain” talk from a panel of all-star minority Founders from all over the country. From Ideation (vol.1), to Beta Launch (vol.2), to Growth (vol.3), to Exit (vol.4), to Legacy (vol.5), we focus on critical turning points in a successful founder’s journey.

With the typical sound bites and political correctness checked at the door, TFS panelists give their raw, real and uncut stories of the wins, the losses, the drama, and ultimately the turning point moments in their companies that forged their success blueprint. Learn the step-by-step process for building a successful startup, directly from award-winning, nationally recognized founders who’ve done it, and are doing it.

TFS panelists have raised + generated over $215MM in their companies. They are seasoned Founders of technology companies who generally:

  • Have raised and/or are generating millions of dollars
  • Have celebrity endorsements and/or national press
