Chanelle Yarber of BrightGirl Media & Geeks Gone Global Travel to Africa
One of IndieOn65′s Creative Visionaries, and owner of BrightGirl Media, Chanelle Yarber, is already doing amazing things in 2014! Chanelle is one of 25 women in entrepreneurship and technology, who has been chosen to travel to four African nations with Geeks Gone Global “to cross pollinate business and technology practices.”
The women have been asked to crowdfund their excursion, so please help support this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Read more about this great opportunity and the crowdfunding campaign, from Chanelle herself. Also check out the Geeks Gone Global video announcement below.
The “Journey to Sankalp Africa” is February 1 through February 14, 2014. I will travel to Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and finally Kenya to attend the Sankalp Forum, the largest social enterprise focused platform in the world. The Geeks Gone Global trip was commissioned by Gray Matters Capital, one of the world’s largest social impact investors, to stimulate and strengthen ties in the social entrepreneurship and innovation space.
I am so honored to be asked to take this excursion. I think it is extremely powerful that I’ll be traveling with other women entrepreneurs who are interested in stimulating change and who have a global vision. Technology, entrepreneurship and social change are things I’m passionate about so I look forward to learning and growing as I push the needle in these emerging economies. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. In order for me to partake in this endeavor, I have been asked to crowdfund my excursion. Your donation will allow me to globalize BrightGirl Media while impacting global tech entrepreneurship. I only have 24 days to reach my goal!
