Transform Westside Summit March 3, 2017

Featured presenter: Joey Womack, Social Impact Innovator and Co-Founder/Executive Director of Goodie Nation
Presentation: Goodie Nation’s #HackGentrification Innovation Incubator

Atlanta-based nonprofit Goodie Nation is a self-described tribe of everyday people, changemakers, and entrepreneurs using innovation to help under-served communities.

With help from a grant by Google, Goodie Nation created Goodie Innovation – a six-month social impact incubator designed to invent and launch big idea technologies. The 2016 Cohort focused on economic development with the goal of producing ten tech startups to build products to connect people that live/work in areas affected by gentrification to emerging nearby economic opportunities.

At our March 3 Transform Westside Summit, Joey will talk about the incubator that spawned not 10, but 11 start-ups.

The Transform Westside Summit is held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month and is free and open to the public. Meetings begin promptly at 7:15 a.m. with complimentary breakfast, provided by Summit sponsor Chick-Fil-A, and morning devotion.*

*Many in our community are driven by their spiritual faith to participate in the Westside revitalization effort. The time at the beginning of our meetings is an opportunity to share various inspirational reflections. While the speakers may articulate their personal faith, it is meant to be inclusive, inspiring and meaningful. All are welcome.
