    Building a media startup by Betting on Black Millennials

    Building a media startup by Betting on Black Millennials

    In this episode, I spoke with Brittani Hunter, the founder of a digital media platform that helps Black entrepreneurs and professionals advance their careers through smart, actionable resources.



    She is a  culture-driven, media-tech entrepreneur that’s passionate about driving innovation and culture through technology. She is obsessed with building products that impact, influence, and elevate underserved markets.



    Since launching Mogul Millennial, her startup has quickly grown to be a leading voice and source of content for professional Black millennials looking to elevate their careers and/or businesses.



    We talked about where the idea of Mogul Millennial came from, what the journey was like to go full time as an entrepreneur, her vision for the company and some of the struggles with starting and growing a media startup as a solo founder.

    We also share our love for freshly squeezed juices, entrepreneurship and startups.

    Brittani is remarkably focused and driven, which is something you notice the moment you hear her speak. At the time of this interview, she was single-handedly managing over 40 writers and an operations team.

    Since our conversation, Brittani has gone on to be accepted into Snap Inc’s Yellow Accelerator Program where Mogul Millennial will be polished into one of the new great media companies.

    You can contact Brittani  by email at brittani@themogulmillennial.com or on Twitter at @BrittaniLHunter

    Creating a new travel experience with a digital concierge

    Creating a new travel experience with a digital concierge

    After 10+ years working in the hospitality industry, Samella had seen her fair share of inefficiencies. One in particular that she couldn't get over was the guest experience. There was a gap between the guest and the host that desperately needed to be bridged. Think of My-Cierge as your very own digital concierge that enables the curation of your travel and stay experience by your host. Simply put, Your host now has the power to offer you more than just a place to sleep. My-Cierge specializes in creating experiences, providing real-time communication and helping streamline hosts day-to-day operations. 

    What's interesting is that she had no experience in tech and no industry connections when she embarked on this journey. From educating herself on startup mechanics to securing a CTO and finally launching, we covered it all in this episode. 

    Some highlights-


    How she came up with the idea 
    First steps taken to build the app 
    Securing a developer and then a CTO
    Finding customers 
    The startup mindset 
    Raising funding and bootstrapping 
    The startup scene in Miami 
    Staying relentless and continually educating herself 

    Connect with Samella on Instagram, Linkedin or Facebook.

The Content We Need

This podcast does a great job of highlighting individuals in a community that is often looked over. This podcast gives a platform to black millennial entrepreneurs, allowing them to share their stories, struggles, and their victories. The guests are great, and the host does a fantastic job of asking the right questions that help the listeners to gain insight and understanding of their journey. This is an excellent podcast, and I highly recommend it.
