More and more people are looking to get into digital media as a way to advance as an entrepreneur. Whether it be by leveraging the web to promote their physical goods and services online, or developing online software to create the next tech startup.
When deciding to launch the next big thing in tech, the often talked about “Digital Divide” prohibits some urban entrepreneurs from gaining access to valuable information and resources necessary to take their business idea from concept to completion. That’s where organizations like digitalUNdivided steps in to “bridge the digital knowledge gap” with programs and projects around the county.
Their latest event is in my backyard, so I thought I’d share with you the START Conference that’s geared towards entrepreneurs looking to take their ideas, skills, and work ethic to the next [digital] level.
“The goal of START ATL is to give urban entrepreneurs the vital tools necessary to create successful tech-enabled companies” said Kathryn Finney, Managing Director of digitalUNdivided. She along with other notable experts will be sharing their tips during the all-day interactive symposium in Atlanta.
Additional information entrepreneurs can expect to receive are ways to raise money for your business and the opportunity to network with venture capitalists, how to build a web or mobile app with little to no tech/coding knowledge, and the opportunity to pitch your idea to investors for a chance to win prizes, business coaching, and receive funding.
The all-day event will take place Saturday, April 13th at 9am in Atlanta at Spelman College. to get tickets, visit START ATL on Eventbrite (Early-bird tickets end TODAY).
