Join NY Tech Alliance and QueerTech for Developing Pride, our celebration of technology founded, coded, and created by the LGBTQ+ community!

This year, the celebration will go beyond the city limits and cross borders as we open the showcase to include LGBTQ+ founders from anywhere. The evening will spotlight queer founders and showcase the tech they’ve built, and will be complete with networking opportunities before and after the program.

OPEN TO ALL so be sure to tell all your friends, colleagues, and everyone you know!

5:30-6:15 Networking
6:15-7:30 Demos
