Ted Lucas, Founder of Technolij, and Chairman Oliver G. Gilbert III Set to Host Web 3.0 Workshop


The world is experiencing massive trends in Cryptos, NFTs, and Web 3.0, and sooner or later, everyone will need to adapt to these new technologies. Miami-based nonprofit organization, Technolij, has created a platform to introduce those in the Black and Brown community to create a pipeline for emerging tech to close the wealth and technology gap.

Technolij has partnered with Miami-Dade County Chairman Oliver G. Gilbert III to host a free workshop that will include a beginner’s guide to Web 3.0: Non-Fungible Token (NFT), Blockchain, and Cryptocurrency on Thursday, December 8, 2022, from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Florida Memorial University’s Lehman Building located at 15800 NW 42nd Ave., Miami Gardens, FL 33054. 

This free workshop is open to individuals at all career levels. No prior tech experience is required. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP at

This educational and informative event is in partnership with the Institute for Black Wealth at Florida Memorial University. While Web 3.0 is still in its infancy, the founder of Technolij, Ted Lucas, understands its rich potential and is committed to getting communities of color prepared to be a part of this new technology platform, as well as with existing platforms. Lucas is known for having built a music empire as the Founder and CEO of Slip-N-Slide Records.

Having founding Technolij, Lucas intends to prepare and introduce women and minorities to the workforce and entrepreneurial opportunities in emerging and advanced technologies. As a music executive and philanthropist, Lucas understands the need for communities of color to have opportunities and access.

“As we recognize Web 3.0’s rich potential and the numerous benefits to learning blockchain technology, we can wait and be forced to learn about Cryptos/NFTs when it’s too late or learn it now and ride the current waves of opportunities,” said Lucas.

For Chairman Oliver Gilbert, this workshop serves as an opportunity to educate community members and give them hands on experience with new technologies.

“Web 3.0 is taking the world by storm. The technology has incorporated concepts such as blockchains, NFTs, and Cryptocurrency that are leading the charge in the World Wide Web as we know it,” said Gilbert. “I want to equip the District 1 residents with progressive knowledge as we head toward a rapid change in technological evolution.”

Technolij’s mission to increase technology access for underserved communities doesn’t end with this workshop. The Technolij Innovation Tech Lab will open in the Smith Conference Center on the campus of Florida Memorial University in January 2023. The partnership is part of a larger prosperity agenda to close the gap and create wealth. In addition, Technolij will provide training and access to capital for tech businesses.

The rapid growth of digital processes is shaping how the modern individual approaches art, business, and commodities, and blockchain technology is altering how to process transactions, too. New employment opportunities involving blockchain are emerging everywhere and are continuing to rise. This growth has already shown signs of dictating the business landscape, and therefore, impacting what jobs will be profitable. For those looking to get on the ground floor, the best place to start is with workshops like this!
