Think of RoadPitch as ‘Amazing Race Meets Shark Tank’ for Black Tech Founders

Aformerly Philadelphia-based entrepreneur and a technologist are seeking to be “the glue” connecting Black founders to resources around the United States.

Rohan Brown and Meagan Turner met about a year ago through a “hackathon on wheels”-type of program, where founders developed technical projects and business plans as they traveled through the Midwest. This program had a diversity-focused branch, but Brown and Turner decided that they want to do more to help Black founders specifically.

So they started RoadPitch, a program that invites Black tech founders to join them for weeklong trips in certain regions of the United States so they can pitch to investors in cities they aren’t native to.
