FounderGym

Its all Sama Jashnani's fault. The NYC tech scene is filled with lots to do. I met Sama at Galvanize pitch event, she had attended Founder Gym and encouraged me to apply. I was out. Out of resources, out of drive out of solutions. So I applied.
Founder Gym was life changing! The love and support and drive of fellow entrepreneurs was an oasis in my personal desert. I learned so much in those six weeks. The community has continued to support me over the next year in the Slack channel, at various events and online. I cannot say enough good things about FG. If you are serious about a startup as a under represented founder (black, female, LGBTQiA) there is no better place to start your journey. Apply today.

University of Maryland

My greatest desire is to go back and finish my graduate program at University of Maryland. I absolutely loved the coursework. The professors are awesome. I took the "failure" of Planet of the Apps and made my first pitch deck applying to the MPTE Tech Entrepreneurship Program. I was accepted and completed a semester. University of Maryland provided a key insight. An extensible software container can replace the idea of a group and the related UI could be patented. My original idea was flawed, using video to attract people virally only supplied enough people for one side of the trip leaving and empty plane for the return leg. I came up with a crazy invention to fill the plane with Amazon boxes and tie into their inventory system. I say invention because the contraption would be wheeled in and placed into the empty seats, giving the plane balance….Sometimes I get ahead of myself. I also was able to use the deep resources IBIS and plan a blue ocean strategy for BNDWGN. Fond memories.
