Tech Founders Will Discuss Innovation & Future of Work During DC Event
Buffalo, New York, January 30, 2022 – ShearShare, an award-winning mobile marketplace that provides space-as-a-service for the beauty and barbering industry, announced today its participation in the Greater Washington DC Black Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural expo, Let’s Talk Black Tech 2023.
The cofounders of ShearShare will present at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, at the Focus Social Club in Washington, D.C., as part of two panels moderated by Howard Jean, events chair and CEO of Black Meta Agency. The sessions will discuss the importance of technology solutions as proven tools to scale businesses, business equity, and more. Dr. Tye and Courtney Caldwell’s panel discussion will highlight the innovation that led them to pioneer the first on-demand salon and barbershop space rental app.
“As we continue to build out verticalized SaaS for the second largest industry for freelancers and independent contractors,” says Dr. Tye Caldwell, ShearShare cofounder & CEO, “one constant remains: the expectations on the future of work are changing. We live in a shifting business and innovation landscape, and beauty—one of the oldest industries in the world—is just as impactful on our global economy. Courtney and I look forward to sharing with GWBCC attendees how deconstructing an age-old industry with tech actually benefits us all.”
This year’s inaugural event will bring together more than 300+ Black professionals, over 25+ speakers, many of whom are shaping business equity and technology initiatives at America’s largest corporations including Amazon, Microsoft, Department of Defense, Forbes, and more.
