Summer of Acceleration

Much has been happening with EPKpage! We’ve brought on a full time C.O.O., Luke Benson (pictured above) and have been accepted into the StartMMT accelerator program!

What does that mean? Well, I’ve got a partner to help me build, grow, and run the business. We’ll be receiving mentorship and guidance from awesome entrepreneurs and business professionals throughout the next 100 days leading up to a “Demo Day” pitch in front of all the major investors in this region. Sounds kinda cool, right?

The StartMMT program is a collaboration with Memphis, Tennessee’s startup incubator, Start Co., and a music nonprofit run by Hall of Fame songwriter David Porter.

This is an awesome group of people to be surrounded by. While we represent one of two music teams in StartMMT, we are joined by teams creating companies in the logistics, medical, technology, and nonprofit sectors and industries. I’m thankful for this opportunity to work with these innovative and hard working individuals.

For the first time since I graduated from college I feel like class is back in session.
