In his quest to impact one billion people globally, Joey Womack is hitting the mark by hosting hackathon after hackathon and serving as a necessary resource for “tech for good” pioneers. As the co-founder of Goodie Nation and Amplify4Good, Joey has met his fair share of social entrepreneurs making their dream a reality one arduous day after the next.
In recognition of their blood, sweat, and tears we are highlighting five female founders straight outta Goodie Nation. These boss women are working on some of Atlanta’s starkest issues while building stronger – and safer – communities in the process.
Jasmine Crowe is the driving force behind Goodr, an app that provides in-the-minute food rescue while simultaneously cutting back food waste and feeding Atlanta’s hungriest communities. How sweet is that?
After recognizing that blue lights on campus weren’t enough to deter sexual assaults, Annmarie Stockinger created GoSafely. The keychain protects potential victims of sexual harassment and rape by contacting campus police and medical services without alerting attackers – keeping students safe one device at a time. Did we mention she’s a WeWork Creator Awards finalist?
At the cross-section of technology and social impact, you’ll find Mini City. Founded by India Hayes and Anita Jones, Mini City built a fit-bit-esque wearable wristband that serves Atlanta’s homeless community by streamlining vital records, legal identification, and employment forms. The dream? Eradicate homelessness.
