Blerdology is a tech social enterprise focused on increasing the number of African Americans in technology and making life better for those already in the space by facilitating networking and exposure opportunities. We’re also the first organization to host hackathons specifically targeting African Americans.

African Americans compose less than 1 percent of tech professionals and entrepreneurs and we feel this diversity of thought is much needed.

My friend Kat Calvin runs this group, and she is a tremendous force in the effort to bring minorities into the startup/entrepreneur fold here in DC. Definitely a name you’ll want to remember.
