October proved to be a very challenging month for us. We applied and were selected to participate in the Mississippi New Venture Competition (which included the submission of an executive summary and presentation before the competition) as well as an application to Echoing Green for a social entrepreneurship fellowship.
After work and on weekends, we spent hours at Coalesce Co-working Space ensuring we properly articulated our purpose, mission and other necessary strategies.
November 1st was competition day. Competitors were split into three categories: Student Division, Pre-Revenue Division 1 (Niche) and Pre-Revenue Division 2 (Technology). Although we did not win, we want to congratulate all of the winners in all of the categories. As well as friends of TinyJXN: Satchel and Nobility Tech.
What's Next? Akili is prepping for his final architecture exam and Ashlee is putting the finishing touches on her dissertation. Wish us luck on the Echoing Green Fellowship; however, we will continue the search for capital to fund our first mini development.
Special thanks to our support system, Jaynae Young, and Branden Theodore. Shout out to the new friends we met yesterday, we look forward to working with you!
