Satori Interactive, a tech company founded and led by two black sisters, wins Black Enterprise‘s Family Business of the Year award.
- The sisters, both computer science graduates, founded the company in 2004 in an industry that still struggles with diversity in both gender and race.
- The 2013 U.S. Census Report revealed that only 25% of STEM employees in 2011 were women and only 6% African-Americans, despite the latter graduating with computer science degrees from elite universities at twice that rate.
- Satori Interactive provides business-to-business services focusing on user experience research and consulting.
