Rodney Williams, founder of LISNR and co-founder of SoLo Funds, recently closed an impressive $10M Series A round for a platform offering an alternative to predatory payday loans. He talks to fellow entrepreneur, Danielle Sydnor, Founder and CEO of We Win Strategies Group, about what it takes to turn a tech-enabled idea into a successful startup and offers sage advice for those thinking of taking the leap into tech entrepreneurship.
JumpStart's Commitment to Fight System Racism
Our mission is to unlock the full potential of entrepreneurship to transform entire communities. We acknowledge this mission cannot be achieved while systemic racism remains.
This is a human rights issue, a public health crisis and a barrier to economic growth for all Americans. For these reasons, we will act with urgency alongside partners who share the goal of eradicating racism in all forms.
As we turn our individual and collective pain into purpose and action, we are committed to working with our non-profit and institutional partners, innovators, entrepreneurs and small businesses to make significant progress toward a more diverse, inclusive and equitable future.
