The Black Entrepreneurs Changing The Tech Game In Nashville

An Urbaanite Collaboration with entrepreneur-center-logo

We sat down with some rockstar entrepreneurs in the technology industry and it was pretty awesome. From a recent PhD grad that has created software to aid biomedical researchers to an ex-Comcast sales rep who is now helping organizations manage their telecommunications effort to a mother/daughter team helping to remove some of the networking anxiety you feel at events through their mobile app. It’s good folks and that is just a snippet. These entrepreneurs have pitched their businesses in front of many people and received funding and investors (think Shark Tank but in real-life).  In a time where things and dreams can feel unattainable or saved for people that may not look like you, these entrepreneurs are showing that winning is in the cards for us all. It is so possible folks and their stories, will leave you inspired and ready to create your own “something”, trust.
