People: Blk Hack brings resources to African-American entrepreneurs

Columbus is full of young creatives with seemingly endless ideas for business ventures. Luckily, these budding entrepreneurs have places to go in the city to present and cultivate their visions. But twin brothers Branden and Bruce Jones, 31, noticed that certain demographics are often missing from these settings… The next event, “The Art of Design, Build and Pitch,” will take place Monday, Sept. 19 at Rev1 Ventures, a venture development organization that hosts all Blk Hack events. The panel will include user experience and user interface designer Natalie Howard, startup business consultant Robert Nicholson, Soulo Theory Creative Owner and CEO Marshall Shorts and Paul Proffitt, founder of SunDown RunDown, which hosts pitch events and provides resources for entrepreneurs. The September event will focus on getting a concept past the idea stage and in front of investors.
