TECHNOIRTHE BIG PITCH


For three years, we've hosted the Big Pitch - our flagship event. Drawing from the very same spirit of healthy rivalry that is at the heart of AT&T's Nation’s Football Classic, each installment aims to showcase, fund, and celebrating black brilliance. We're proud to have grown the event into one of DC's premiere tech events, routinely attracting 500+ of the brightest black minds in America. With Events DC as our partner and the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference kicking off at the same time, the Big Pitch has become a can't miss event.

We partnered with TAG Labs, to roll out a dynamic series of workshops designed to train a new generation of video game designers and introduce Black youth to the technology behind the games they love. Using video game design as a vehicle to promote STEM, our inaugural Good of Gaming event was endorsed by the Presidential Innovation Fellowship program.
