About two weeks ago, I attended START Atlanta, a conference designed to encourage and provide resources to minority, digital entrepreneurs.  It was an amazing conference with an abundance of takeaways that I could discuss for days. However, two points stood out to me: 1) START NOW! and 2) don’t be afraid to share your innovative ideas. Below is a Storify slideshow of all the information I gathered. And while I didn’t START immediately, I am STARTing now. For more information, visit http://www.digitalundivided.com/. And if you get the chance, be sure to attend START. I promise, the information is invaluable.

 

 

Start Atlanta

On April 13, digital entrepreneurs across the city gathered at Spelman College to share tips, gather resources and pitch their products. Below are tweets from the conversation.

Our founder @KathrynFinney giving an amazing intro!! #startatl pic.twitter.com/fw1IF2Blrhdigitalundivided
"We have a history as black people of entrepreneurship." #startatlBriana
Black women have a higher percentage of mobile phone usage #STARTATLdigitalundivided
There was a 258% increase in the number of businesses owned by black women since 1997 #startatlIAmKiaSpeaks.com
There are 400,000 unfilled tech jobs. If you’re looking for work, consider technology fields. #startatlDamita Jo
Steps to build your company.. #STARTATLdigitalundivided
1. START IT #STARTATLdigitalundivided
When we started @HappyFishBoard, we all agreed we should just start. Glad to know we were right! #startatlBriana
Perfection is your enemy in the tech startup space @DigUnDiv #StartAtlAngela P. Wood
Your idea is never going to be perfect. #STARTATLdigitalundivided
Step 2: Draw out your idea. You don’t need a 30 page business plan. Just outline your plan. #STARTATLIAmKiaSpeaks.com
Test your idea! #startatl pic.twitter.com/khAt8joWORdigitalundivided
Step 3: Test your idea.. #STARTATLdigitalundivided
use @launchrocket and build a simple launching site for your page #STARTATLdigitalundivided
Use the Google test to test your idea #STARTATLdigitalundivided
4) Build it yourself: –Free places to learn code–Kahn Academy–Code Academy–Code.org#STARTATLIAmKiaSpeaks.com
Languages you MUST know: HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP #STARTATLdigitalundivided
5) Share Your Idea–If your idea is fragile and "stealable," it’s not going to last in the market.#STARTATLDamita Jo
SEO will be one the most important assets in marketing your tech company. #STARTATLdigitalundivided
Only about 2% of startup companies get VC funding #STARTATLdigitalundivided
VC = Venture Capital — financial capital provided to early-stage, high-potential, high risk, growth startup companies.
Nondisclosure agreements are not respected in the tech world. Silicon Valley folks won’t meet w/ you if you request one be signed. #STARTATLDamita Jo
Tip: Build your company and worry about funding later #STARTATLdigitalundivided
Between more then one idea? What is your passion? What drives you? #STARTATLdigitalundivided
