[TechConneXt Summit] ‘Til next time …

After a wildly successful inaugural event, Black Enterprise gears up for its 2016 Summit.

Black Enterprise President & CEO Earl "Butch" Graves, Jr. thanking everyone who made the 2015 TechConneXt Summit possible.

BlackEnterprise.com would like to extend a huge thank you to all who helped make the inaugural Black Enterprise TechConneXt Summit a resounding success. Students, entrepreneurs, speakers, professionals, pioneers, and supporters—without you all coming together and lending us your time and expertise, TechConneXt may not have been the triumph it proved to be.

A very special thank you goes out to Trailblazer Award recipients Ken Coleman, Caretha Coleman, and Roy Clay, Sr.—your pioneering spirit made it all possible. And thank you to our event sponsors—AT&T, Intel, Capital One, and EMC2—for their tangible support.

This year’s TechConneXt Summit covered pitching to investors, millennial tech stars, guides to senior management positions, industry diversity, opportunities in gaming, keys to Silicon Valley success, innovation showcases, powerhouse conversations, hacking and more. Just imagine what the topics will be at the 2016 event.

Also, a big congratulations to the exceptional students of Morgan State University for winning the BE SMART Hackathon for having the best and most effective financial management app for students. Your future in Silicon Valley awaits.
