BLACK TECHIES GATHER IN TEXAS TO TALK TECH SOLUTIONS, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM AT THE TCX EXPERIENCE
Black Enterprise brought The TCX Experience to the Austin Metro area on Tuesday, offering a daylong event full of conversations on African Americans and their role in “the fourth industrial revolution” driven by technology.
Presented by an array of leading experts, the conversations focused on such pressing issues as increasing representation of African Americans industrywide; the value of public interest technology; advantageous uses of blockchain; and innovative disruption of the criminal justice system.
Billed as “the intersection of tech and opportunity,” TCX, which is short for TechConneXt, ushered in its fifth year as a weeklong series of activities held for the first time in Round Rock, Texas, corporate headquarters for Dell Technologies, one of the event hosts. Other sponsors for yesterday’s series of talks and panels were IBM and Koch/Georgia-Pacific.
