The ITEM stands for The Inclusive & Technology Movement and is an
initiative born of ongoing conversations among minority and women business
owners in the Greater Philadelphia area, all of whom are in the tech sector. Through
the conversations, it became evident that there is a lack of purposeful networking,
peer collaboration to develop projects or to bid for larger corporate or government
contracts and mentoring going on in this sector of the tech community. The ITEM
was born to ensure this community of visionary business owners has a place to
convene, exchange ideas and network.
