The BOSS Network Hosts Free Event For Black Female Founders

The BOSS Network, in collaboration with JPMorgan Chase and Advancing Black Pathways, will host a two-day virtual event to educate, empower and promote Black female founders on Dec. 4-5.

Black founders receive less than 1% of venture capital funds annually, and Black women founders account for less than that, according to the Harvard Business Review. Through the Minority Merchant Event series, The BOSS Network will provide a platform for Black women to discuss their experiences in launching successful businesses, provide a blueprint on how to build a successful business and share strategies that Black female founders can leverage to gain access to capital.

“The time is now to support these extraordinary women, who are breaking down barriers in technology and their respective industries, even in the midst of a global pandemic and a social unrest that has ignited a national dialogue on systemic racism,” states a press release for

Enterprise tips for managing the multicloud (free PDF)

More companies than ever are using multiple cloud providers to deploy their applications.

Zoom’s surging free user base dents margins as cloud costs rise

(Reuters) — Zoom warned on Monday that its gross margins would remain under pressure going into 2021 as the surging number of free users of its video conferencing service makes it hard to offset a spike in costs to maintain its growth.

Shares of the company, which have risen about sevenfold this year, fueled by the meteoric rise in demand for video conferencing for work, school, and socializing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fell 5% after the bell, despite upbeat fourth-quarter forecasts.

Zoom operates some of its own datacenters, but it also relies on cloud computing services from outside vendors such as Amazon and Oracle, meaning it must bear costs for free users.

Those bills, driven in part by a jump in free users in the third quarter as millions of students and teachers started new school semesters, pushed Zoom’s gross profit margins down to 66.7%, below analysts’
