Research shows that Black founders are building valuable products and businesses with scalable opportunities in high-growth industries, but receive a fraction of the funding available. Black Women Talk Tech and Black Men Talk Tech have teamed to host a virtual summit to help Black tech founders access finance and fundraising resources. The Face of a Founder Summit will host more than 1,000 pre-seed / early-stage tech founders looking to address funding needs and participate in one-on-one investor matchmaking sessions.

Speakers include Isaac Hayes III (President/CEO, Fanbase), Elise Smith (Founder, Praxis Labs); Regina Green (VP of Launch with GS); Jerrod Hill (Venture Capital Business Development, AWS); Luigi DiPiazza (Strategy & Operations Associate, XRC Labs); Lotfi Karoui (Chief Strategist Head of the Credit Research Group, Goldman Sachs); David Merizle (Chief US Economist, Goldman Sachs); and Arlan Hamilton (Founder and Managing Partner of Backstage Capital).
