How To Prepare for #FOCUS100 Tech Conference

#FOCUS100 is tomorrow, October 5th! 

We’re excited! We’re pumped! We’re dedicated! The #FOCUS100 symposium is where tech startups led by black women can connect with industry innovators, brand managers, and digital influencers. The event consists of a half-day pitch bootcamp, followed by a full-day symposium featuring panels, valuable mentorship sessions and a pitch competition with top angel investors and VCs. #FOCUS100 is October 5-6th in New York City.
