WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

During last October’s TCX, I personally stood up to ask a question to the Y Combinator speaker, and his response got my team (to consider) and share a new direction for our company.
Bridgett Coates, Co-owner, Super Fan Chase
Since the conference, I've started a new business that's also a nonprofit—We Are Bridging the Gap. In addition, I've teamed up with Twista and Autism Speaks to put together a gaming event, which was inspired by Laura (Teclemariam’s) speech , (who is) from EA Sports.
Brigitte Atta-Poku, Program Manager, SelligentCEO, We Are Bridging the Gap
Just last year, (OnceLogix was on) Inc. magazine’s list of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America and received an award. Also, OnceLogix executives have been traveling across the world, mentoring and speaking as it relates to minorities in tech.
Rod Brown, COO, OnceLogix
