What Is Blerdology?

blerdology_blackcoralBlerds unite! Blerdology, a social enterprise to support and engage the black startup and STEM community, is rallying blerds (black nerds) across the country with its “Blerds Night Out Tour.” Blerdology is the first organization to produce hackathons specifically targeting African-Americans, and these summer networking events aim to showcase rising black innovators and engage minority startup ecosystems.

The happy hour series (which has already hit Orlando, Dallas, and Chicago and is heading to New York City on Friday, followed by San Francisco and Detroit) features community partners such as black business crowdfunding platform BlackStartup.com, as well as appearances by top STEM leaders. Ultimately, Blerdology hopes to increase the number of African Americans in technology and facilitate networking for those already in the space.
