Kenny Gleen: The Issa Rae talk was fantastic, and it was an amazing networking event. This is something that’s fantastic for the city of Cincinnati in general, and you can meet a lot of people. It’s something about the atmosphere, and I loved being at this event.

Tyler Shaw: My experience here has been great so far. It’s honestly so nice and refreshing to meet like-minded individuals, and I gained a lot from a lot of the speakers rounding out the week here. I think the biggest thing that I’ve taken away so far is that you’re not alone in this journey as an entrepreneur. If you reach out and you support other people, other people will support you.

Karma Wilson: This was my first time attending Black Tech Week and I loved it. My biggest takeaway was not to put too much pressure on yourself because with that, it’s not good for your mental. That’s one thing that I struggled with, putting so much pressure on myself and I’ve learned so much from so many different people. There were a lot of networking opportunities, and I made a lot of connections.

Khamijah Wilson: This was my first year attending Black Tech Week and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved all the speakers. I loved all the different businesses that came out, it just showed a lot of unity. One thing I took away was to be patient because time is what’s going to get you where you want to go and time is what’s going to make you better in your craft whatever that may be.
