ABOUT / MISSION
TECH HUSTLE CULTURE is a journalistic community organization created in 2016 by Chicago and NY raised creative technologists and entrepreneurs who recognized the lack of diversity facing educational programming and professional development pipelines in the current technology industry.
At THC, we take our learned academic, professional, and experiential knowledge of the tech industry to lower the barriers of entry for our worldwide community. Coming from non-traditional backgrounds in tech, such as Hip Hop, visual and performing arts and cultural anthropology, our network is underscored by a desire to solve the problems we encounter creatively and together.
We have hosted the first ever Hip-Hop, Technology, and Entrepreneurship conferences where students, entrepreneurs, techies, artists, and other diverse creative folks could connect, learn, build, and empower themselves. Initially called The Dev Jam as a homage to Hip-Hop history and a play on words on tech culture, THC has now grown our programming into a community sustained media platform where we host more events, share knowledge, and heal together.
Shop our clothes, tune into our programming, and look out for future collaborations which continue to bridge tech, culture, and entertainment together!
