Black Tech Nation Ventures Cultivates ‘Digital Wakanda’

Since launching this spring, the newly formed seed-stage venture fund Black Tech Nation Ventures is helping create a ‘digital Wakanda’ for Black tech entrepreneurs in Pittsburgh, Bloomberg reports.

The driving force behind this effort is Kelauni Jasmyn, founder and CEO of the national online network Black Tech Nation. In March, she and partners David Motley and Sean Sebastian launched BTN Ventures, which aims to raise $50 million this year.

In today’s Plug In South LA Beat, we’re traveling far from Silicon Valley to see how BTN Ventures is cultivating a new and welcoming hub for emerging tech:
