    Desmond Wiggan is the founder of BatteryXChange, a Charlotte tech startup that has quickly expanded its reach across the state.

    The Organizational Psychologist on a Mission to Diversify and Disrupt Venture Capital

    The Organizational Psychologist on a Mission to Diversify and Disrupt Venture Capital

    Kasem Rodriguez Mohsen is one of the co-founders of Equilibrium Ventures, a venture capital fund based in Winston-Salem, NC. Venture capital isn't typically a space where minority founders are successful, and not all funders have been entrepreneurs themselves. I was super interested in Kasem's perspective on business funding, as he's been a serial entrepreneur who's had 3 exits (aka sold his businesses). This intimate conversation on our relationships with money, innovation, ourselves, each other, and the future of raising capital is one that left me with contentment and admiration for his journey. I wanted to honor his lived experience, successes, and failures. I know you'll receive notes of motivation and encouragement while hearing him share his wisdom.

    Honey & Hustle Presents: Funding Roundtable, Business Grants, and Commercial Real Estate

    Honey & Hustle Presents: Funding Roundtable, Business Grants, and Commercial Real Estate

    In this special financial roundtable episode of Honey & Hustle, I am joined by Andrea Inoken and Corey Barbour to discuss grant funding and securing commercial loans. While offering free money to businesses, grants can be highly competitive. Entrepreneurs should align their business with organizations that match their industry or geographical location to enhance their chances of securing grants successfully. Grants also often come with post-award reporting obligations. Entrepreneurs must understand the reporting expectations and be ready to demonstrate how the grant funds were utilized and the impact they had on the business.
    Corey emphasized the importance of evaluating their capacity to repay the loan and the character of the borrower. Understanding your cash flow and financial position is essential before taking on debt. This aligns with the idea of being prepared to answer questions about how the loan will be repaid and demonstrating a track record of responsible financial behavior.

    Is College the Right Choice? Helping High School Students Make Better Decisions

    Is College the Right Choice? Helping High School Students Make Better Decisions

    In this episode with Henry Woodbridge, founder of the Mapt app, we discuss nontraditional paths to education for high school seniors. We dive into the challenges of college decision-making and the importance of informed choices. This ed-tech founder is creating software solutions to empower students navigating the college admissions and scholarship application processes. By offering tools for self-reflection, campus exploration, and fundamental education about college applications, the app guides students toward making informed decisions aligned with their academic and personal goals. There are a lot of different pathways to education that aren't necessarily four-year degrees.
    In addition to his app, we talked about angel investors, how we met his co-founders, and being a sober entrepreneur.
