Event Details


Get immediate solutions to your biggest business challenges directly from the ImBlackInTech community brain trust.

HotSeat crowd-sources the specialized knowledge and experiences of investors, accomplished entrepreneurs and seasoned business professionals, to help 10 founders solve critical business challenges they are facing. Whether they are in the room, or watching the 14 minute “HotSeats” from anywhere around the country or around the world via live stream, this impromptu community of mentors provides real-time feedback and solutions to each founder, based on personal experience, to help them navigate serious issues in their business journey. HotSeat is also a way for other founders to be able to learn from the challenges and solutions that arise for other entrepreneurs in the HotSeat, even if it’s not them at that event.

“HotSeat can bridge gaps ongoingly between underrepresented founders, investors, seasoned entrepreneurs and the general business community in Chicago, and galvanize the community to support underrepresented founders, in a structured way that just doesn’t exist right now. It gives that investor or that accomplished but extremely busy business owner a specific place, at a specific time, every single month, that they can go to share their expertise, resources and relationships with underrepresented founders of emerging tech startups, and potentially change their business trajectory in a split second.”
– Thomas K.R. Stovall
