About the Event

Culture Shifting Weekends is an annual invite-only deal making Summit that takes place in Silicon Valley, New York, Miami and London. These are the only Summits of their kind in the United States that unite over 400 accomplished Black & Latino tech executives, entrepreneurs, investors, innovators and social impact leaders in order to enable deals, collaborations and wealth creation (our mission). Over the last 8 years that we've been measuring outcomes, we've enabled over $1B to get into the hands of entrepreneurs, executives, fund managers and non profit leaders.
 

Each coast has a different format; Silicon Valley is the largest gathering of Black leaders in tech, innovation and social impact to narrow the inequality gap in entrepreneurship, on corporate boards, in tech and in the c-suite. Silicon Alley is the largest gathering of Black and Latino Venture Capitalists to narrow the inequality gap in this sector. Miami and London are hybrids of the two.

 

Culture Shifting Weekend is an annual signature event of Culture Shift Labs; a diversity and innovation management consultancy established in 2006.
