I learned so much more with my CO.STARTERS cohorts than I did at college; and I have a business degree. I got the support I needed as I was getting ready to open my studio and was introduced to the North Alabama Revolving Loan which provided the initial funding I needed to get started.

* How did the participation on 24Hour Generator influenced the participant career
In the software startup world, diversity is talked about a lot, but still seems to be comprised mostly of white, 30-year-old males, I want to encourage students who might otherwise not be exposed to entrepreneurship to register for this. I want young people to step out of their normal world and try something new.
