Mass Innovation Nights: African American Founders

Mass Innovation Nights (MIN) and the Greater Grove Hall Main Streets are collaborating on a technology showcase and networking event in the Thelma D. Burns Building, 575 Warren Street, Dorchester, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on June 14th, 2017. This event will feature African and African American founders of tech companies.

“We are excited to support diversity in tech and bring visibility to start-ups looking to be heard in the noisy tech space.” said Bobbie Carlton, the founder of Innovation Nights, and Innovation Women.

 “We are very excited to be partnering with Mass Innovation Nights on MIN #99. We want to see more people in Grove Hall as ‘producers’ of technology instead of just ‘consumers’. Helping people get jobs in technology and starting tech companies is one way to revitalizing the community while mitigating gentrification,” said Ed Gaskin, Executive Director of Greater Grove Hall Main Streets.
