We Belong Here//

For the Makers The Doers, The Shakers

We have been asked alot – am I a techmaker? Many of our amazing community leaders and speakers have shared with us a sense of doubt…over whether they belong in this world of tech…and we want to assuredly respond by saying- YES YOU DO.
Diversity and Inclusion Techmakers of the Caribbean…Let us unite…as we use technology to change the world!
