This page features panels at SXSW Interactive 2013 that will be presented within the BiT House at the Hilton-Garden Inn.
Additionally - this page includes panels that will take place outside of the BiT House that self-selected BiT as a tag, or have panelists or subject matter that we think is of particular interest to blacks in tech. If you would like to have a panel included on this page, please email the SXSW schedule page url to us at email@example.com.
With statistics stating that only 1% of tech startups are founded by blacks and that there is a digital divide why are we not introducing technology in the community at earlier ages. This panel will show how if we expose youth to technology through their passions we can begin to bridge the digital divide. We will have a panel of innovators discussing ways to fuel passion driven young innovators by early exposure and showing technology through ideas, games and parts of their everyday lifestyle that is relatable. The panel will also discuss way to create, implement and attract people to programs that offer early exposure
