About this event

Through the theme of Black progress, we’ll be honouring the work of Black inventors, writers and activists that have made a significant impact on society. 

Over this 2-day event you’ll have the chance to participate in a technology project that celebrates Black innovators. It doesn’t matter if you’re an engineer, designer, product manager or if you’ve never looked at a line of code – all roles are welcome. 

This event is open to Made Tech team members, our clients and those working in the public sector. There’s a limited number of places, so let us know if you’re interested as soon as possible. The deadline to register is Friday 6 October.
