MinTech Lived Experiences Summer Talk Series Recap

MinTech Lived Experiences Summer Talk Series Recap

We hosted an amazing tech talk series in September that brought together professionals, entrepreneurs, creatives and more to share their lived experiences. As a firm built on ensuring people of color are seen and provided opportunities to excel in tech, this series was a true labor of love to celebrate our official 1 year in business.  

It was so inspiring to connect with over 150 people each Wednesday to share the face of tech not always seen. There were so many thought provoking experiences shared and real questions poised. As one of our panelists shared “The gold rush of our generation is tech”.  

As Karen Williams, CEO and Founder also shared, “We have to have representation. People go to work and will work hard for a company if they feel they can obtain the things they see.” This was our goal for the series and we look forward to continuing to elevate the face of tech one person at a time.

MinTech Agency, Nashville’s only diversity tech recruiting firm quietly launched last year and secured our first major client within 30 days. Our goal has been to diversify the face of tech and have connected with Fortune 500 brands who have trusted us to do just that within their workplaces.

As Karen Williams, CEO and Founder shares, “I started MinTech because I knew from first hand experience the impact a career in tech could have on an individual, their family and community.” An impact allowing MinTech employees and direct placements an opportunity to secure mid to senior level roles with highly competitive salaries and benefits.

Mintech Agency Accepted Into This Year’s EO Catalyst Program

Mintech Agency Accepted Into This Year’s EO Catalyst Program

MinTech Agency was recently accepted into the EO Catalyst program. An esteemed program to help businesses grow to $1 million in annual sales that have already reached the $250,000 annual revenue mark. MinTech was awarded a diversity scholarship through an inaugural partnership between EO Nashville and the Nashville Black Chamber of Commerce. Our Founder, Karen Williams shares a little about why she is excited to be a part this upcoming 2020-2021 cohort. 

What made you apply to the EO Catalyst program?  

Well first, I’ve heard so many great things about the EO Catalyst program and how it really can help to grow your business and business network. It’s still true who you know and who knows you is important because to grow a business you need those connections to make a warm introduction or refer your business.
 
Secondly, I started and have grown MinTech from nothing to $250,000 our first year and during a pandemic with the basics and a lot of support from the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. So I know if I apply the processes I’ll learn from Catalyst I can take MinTech over the million dollar mark. With that I’m able to hire more people and support more tech talent that look like me to find the right company and role to grow their career in tech. 
 
Lastly, what I learn is mine and can’t be taken away I can teach those same principles to my children and spouse and continue to create generational wealth for my family and these around me.

What are you looking to accomplish as a result of being apart?  

I want to accomplish control and understanding of my growth/scale strategy. I want to walk away with a wealth of knowledge and actionable processes around building a profitable business.
