Black Women Talk Tech Inc. Expands Footprint with New Acquisition
Black Women Talk Tech, a worldwide collective of Black women tech founders, is broadening its reach. The firm has formally announced the acquisition of Black Female Founders (#BFF) for an undisclosed amount.
“This acquisition will help us reach and support more Black women on their entrepreneurial journeys,” Black Women Talk Tech co-founder Regina Gwynn tells EBONY.
“We are so excited to connect with those who are new to Black Women Talk Tech and power their companies to billion-dollar growth,” she added.
Esosa Ighodaro-Johnson, co-founder and chief marketing officer of Black Women Talk Tech, shared in a statement that the organization already has a history working with #BFF, and “this acquisition will expand resources to a larger audience of Black female entrepreneurs.”
The founders of Black Women Talk Tech see the total acquisition of the Black-women-led organization as a significant moment for the culture. First launched in 2017 – the organization is on a mission to help Black women build billion-dollar businesses and believes this acquisition will help do just that.
“We are all about collaboration, and this partnership adds to debunking the myth that Black women don’t work well together,” says Gwynn. “By joining forces, we can do more—so we are thrilled to be able to reach a wider audience.”
