Impact Presents: Joey Womack, Founder and CEO, Goodie Nation
Community members are invited to join the conversation in person at the Scheller College of Business in Room 200 or virtually through web conference on Tuesday, April 5 at 11:15 a.m.
Joey Womack, founder of Goodie Nation, is a part entrepreneur coach and part super-connector. Since starting Goodie Nation in 2014, Womack is on track to impact a few million people by working with the likes of CARE USA, Google, NetHope, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Ford Motor Company, Coca-Cola, UNCF, Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Village Capital, and the White House HBCU Initiative. And I do a few other things like serve on advisory boards for Startup Atlanta, SXSW and SOCAP.
Goodie Nation is a tech nonprofit that accelerates relationships to influencers, large companies, and investors/funders for the next generation of promising diverse founders and social entrepreneurs. I'm also the Founder of Amplify 4 Good, a mission-driven agency that uses rapid problem-solving to help large companies, nonprofits, and government agencies create social impact, and Co-Founder of Atlanta Black Tech.
In 2012, Womack was bitten by the entrepreneurial when he launched digitalguestlist.com as a graduate student at Florida A&M University. The site grew to 80,000 subscribers/users, and advertised thousands of events for Fortune 500 companies, agencies, and high-profile promoters during special events weekends like NBA All-Star, Super Bowl, and Essence Music Festival. He also used innovative digital marketing strategies to execute events in the Southeast for brands such as Crown Royal, Ciroc, Smirnoff, Coors Light, Warner Bros., and Hennessy.
