Who: Blerdology, the woman-led social enterprise dedicated to increasing the number of African Americans in technology and the first organization to produce hackathons specifically for the minority tech community
What: Blerdology will be hosting a hackathon with the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship & Economic Development at Rutgers Business School, MailChimp, Brick City Development Corp and Initiative Consulting Group to benefit the Center for Collaborative Change April 6-7, 2013. The hackathon will close out a 4-day tech weekend celebrating innovation and the advancement of technology throughout the Brick City.
#BlackHack Newark will bring minority coders and developers to build new and innovative apps and websites in a friendly competition format. #BlackHack attendees are exposed to a wealth of industry insights and business consulting and have the opportunity to get their resumes in the hands of top tech corporations. Building projects on site for little to no costs, #BlackHacks are a novel way for budding entrepreneurs to get their projects off the ground, a fun way to benefit budding tech communities, and an unmatched opportunity to meet and recruit the top minority tech talent from around the world.
Though the event is minority focused, tech enthusiasts from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to come. Blerdology is still accepting student start-up projects and local business participation for the event.
