More about this amazing event:

Change the World has been the ever-growing slogan for all things tech. Every major technology giant from Google, Facebook, Salesforce, Linkedin, Microsoft, Apple, Tesla, Amazon, etc. have all claimed that their platforms will change the world. And today, each tech giant has done just that.

Not only have they changed the world, but they’ve also changed the face of America for decades to come. They’ve expanded the job market and made more millionaires and billionaires over the last twenty years than any other time in history. The new ‘Technology Revolution’ has been created.

The Rise of Technology & Innovation Symposium (Tech Symposium) is designed to not only increase the presence of black emerging innovators in the tech space but to initiate an ongoing conversation that’s long overdue. The scheduled date for this anticipated Symposium is Friday, August 23rd. The venue hosting the half-day event is The University of Chicago Logan Center at 900 East 60th.

The Rise of Technology & Innovation Symposium will also highlight some of Chicago’s brightest youth who’ve created tech gadgets like Apps, Precise Codings and Mobile Games. These hidden gems will have a chance to present their innovative digital discoveries during the Symposium.
