(BALTIMORE – July 25, 2017) – Since our grand opening 15 years ago, Bmorenews.com has had the incredible opportunity to witness as well as be a part of the 21st century technological revolution featuring the most sophisticated software and machinery the world has ever known. Or at least, as far as we know.
The internet has gone from “You have mail” to Yahoo to Google to Myspace to LinkedIn, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram and a plethora of other networks, apps, and the like. Where 5 years ago, a website was the primary necessity in the marketing department, today’s world is dominated by a company or individual’s social media.
Like everyone else, Bmorenews has had to adapt to the ever-changing environment because at the end of the day, we have a business to run. Therefore, like everyone else – we have to identify what works best for us. Everything isn’t for everybody. In a world with a zillion different gadgets, plain ol’ common sense is still king.
Blacktechpreneur, Bmorenews’ 15th birthday event, is scheduled for Thursday, August 3, 2017 (10a-2p) in Room 104 of the Earl G. Graves School of Business at Morgan State located at 4100 Hillen Road in the Northwood Shopping Center.
The purpose of this event is to bring together some of the brightest business and technical minds in the region to discuss the intersection of business and technology in 21st century America. How do we make money? What are the latest in ‘best practices’? What strategies are the bigger companies using that we need to know about?
We will attempt to answer these and other questions with the help of some truly dynamic people, like New York City’s own Odessa Hopkins, Marsha Jews of “Keep It Moving” on WEAA, Dr. Barney Wilson (who now heads a school in Nigeria), and Leonard Young, founder and CEO of DelawareBlack.com.
Other confirmed guests include William Hopson, CEO of Icetech.net (MD); Robert Ingram of Black Enterprise Magazine (NY, MD); Terrence Briggs, Founder of The Good Tree Patron’s Club (MD); Quintin Lathan, Shopbeautyplus.com (MD); Real Estate guru Marcel Umphery (MD); Isaac Loyal, Co-owner of of Crown Radio, graphic artist/serial entrepreneur/filmmaker Akio Evans; and our host, Omar S. Muhammad, Executive Director of the EDAC at Morgan State University (MD).
In addition to workshops, the event will also feature a ceremony at noon which will include The Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award for a few select individuals.
