City Startup Labs (CSL), hybrid accelerator and incubator, today has announced that it has acquired BLKTECHCLT, an inclusive tech and startup community and consulting firm.
“I was excited to hear from Sherrell about this opportunity to acquire BlkTechInteractive and the BLKTECHCLT brand,” said Henry Rock, founder and CEO of City Startup Labs (CSL). “For one, I’ve been a fan of her and Enovia right from the start with their interest in addressing what they felt was a gap in developing Black tech talent. This acquisition now makes it possible for us to focus our activities with young entrepreneurs within technology fields – especially advanced technologies.”
“We’ve spent the last four years building one of the most substantive ecosystem support companies in Charlotte that focused on data-driven programming and support to the most overlooked group in the city: well-educated Black techies and budding high-growth tech entrepreneurs,” said Sherrell Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of BLKTECHCLT. “We’re beyond excited to transition the body of our work to the City Startup Labs team.”
