What: #BlackGirlsHack, the premier provider of minority focused hackathons, will host the next installation of its signature series #blackhack during SXSW on March 9-10 from 9 pm to 9 am at the Hilton Garden Inn Austin Convention Center. Hosted in partnership with the SXSW Blacks in Technology (BiT) House #BlackHack Hollywood will combine the interactive, film, and music components of the famed festival to help entrepreneurs build entertainment focused startups.
#BlackHack Hollywood will bring minority coders and developers to build new and innovative apps and websites in the music and film arena in a friendly competitive format. #BlackHack attendees are exposed to a wealth of industry insights and business consulting and have the opportunity to get their resumes in the hands of top tech corporations. While building projects on site for little to no cost, #BlackHacks are a novel way for budding entrepreneurs to get their projects off the ground and an unmatched opportunity to network, meet and recruit top minority tech talent from around the world. By tackling the entertainment space #BlackGirlsHack hope to help African Americans see the opportunity to build high growth startups that still lie within their interests.
When: 9 pm to 9 am; March 9-10, 2013
Where: Hilton Garden Inn Austin Convention Center
