This time last year Ama Kessie, our former part-time Investor Relations Manager and 2019 Georgia State University graduate, was a full-time nurse. By June of this year, she was the Startup Partnerships Coordinator at Dropbox Docsend – a rapid and nontraditional development in her career. The story of how that happen truly embodies our culture at Goodie Nation (shout out to Haley Bryant from Hustle Fund).
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the role Goodie Nation plays/can play in the larger startup ecosystem. And just like we our a platform for founders to do bigger and better things, I believe that same can hold true for our team.
Now we’ve taken steps to formalize this with the Goodie Nation Fellowship program. It’s part experience, part life design (inspired by the program for social entrepreneurs I participated in), and part exposure to good (and dope) people.
I’m proud to announce our first set of Goodie Nation Fellows. These are some pretty dope people who are the next generation of investors, tech storytellers, community builders, and accelerator/incubator leaders. Please be “intentionally good” and help them in their professional journey.
