"BFUTR opened my eyes to the possibilities of being a top player in the tech space. Before the event, I did not know there were so many Blacks at the top of the game here in Canada but the event helped me realize that which ended up being such a huge motivation."
BFUTR Attendee
"BFUTR made me feel seen and empowered in a city that constantly treats black people like other. It was inspiring to see executives, c-suite, founders and senior people who are making the big decisions for the biggest corporations in Canada being honest and themselves."
