How it all started

TEC stands for Technology Entertainment Convergence. TEC Leimert is a non-profit community organization dedicated to bringing urban professionals, business owners, and students together with entertainment industry experts and technology entrepreneurs to bridge the digital divide, close the wealth gap, and create social capital. 

TEC Leimert was created because its founders recognizes that technology has revolutionized and disrupted our lives from how we consume entertainment to how we purchase household goods. Additionally, TEC has identified South Los Angeles as a blue ocean of opportunity where a digital divide exists, and TEC seeks to close.

 

TEC Leimert seeks to close the digital divide by hosting a series of thoughtful programming taking place throughout the year. These programs include an annual conference, Camp Xstream youth summer camp, Nxt Lvl professional development incubator, tech night salon
