Braze Named Regional Timmy Award Winner For Tech for Black Founders Program

Team Braze By Team Braze Oct 29, 2021

We’re humbled to announce Tech in Motion—a North American event series with a mission to bring local tech communities together to meet, learn, and innovate—has recognized the Tech for Black Founders program with a Best Tech For Good for the New York City Region award. The award highlights the work this program has done to level the playing field when it comes to tools and training for prospective entrepreneurs. Winners were chosen by popular vote in the New York tech community.

In partnership with Amplitude, Branch, mParticle, and Radar, Braze launched the Tech for Black Founders program in 2020 to provide resources and technology at no cost to a cohort of Black-owned businesses. In an ecosystem where only 1% of venture-funded startup founders are Black, there’s obviously a lot of ground to make up. Having access to cutting-edge marketing and analytics tools from Braze and our partners can make a real difference.

“The Best Tech for Good category is a prime example of how the tech industry can reach out and lift up their communities,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Motion Recruitment, Tech in Motion’s creator. “The Regional Timmy winners in this category have truly gone above and beyond, and it is a privilege to share their stories of how they used technology to overcome the world’s challenges.”

We’re proud to be recognized and going forward will be investing even more in our efforts to create a tech industry that is equitable and accessible.
