Google matches Envolve’s pledge to Titan Generator
Austin, March 9, 2019 – Envolve Entrepreneurship is a partner of the social impact firm Generation Titans along with Google, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, Common Impact, and the Soze Agency to generate resources for enterprise solutions.
The inaugural Titan Generator was launched at Google Austin on March 9, 2019, during an event that sparked collaboration between startup businesses run by entrepreneurs of color.
“We want to work together within the social impact ecosystem to provide pro-bono assistance and deal flow for entrepreneurs of color. We’re working to pull together a diverse mix of investors and service providers who are seeking to scale social impact at pace. We see the Titan Generator event as a dynamic business accelerator,” stated Jessica Lynch, one of the three founding partners of Generation Titans.
“Robert Kennedy called young people ‘the world’s hope’, and we are thrilled to bring together leading young activists, entrepreneurs, and students who embody that message. These young leaders inspire us all to carry on my father’s legacy of advocating for a more just and peaceful world,” said Kerry Kennedy, President – Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights.
Nestor Ruiz, Digital Organizer at United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led network in the country added: “Immigrants, including those who are undocumented, are resilient and resourceful entrepreneurs. We’ve built lives here, started businesses and we continue to find the means to thrive despite the political environment. We are pumped to be part of Titan Generator, working with organizations that share our vision for all immigrant people.”
David Hogg of March for Our Lives stated: “We strongly believe that multiple resources and partners need to be involved in stopping gun violence in America. We can’t wait to brainstorm solutions and work on real plans of action.”
Envolve Entrepreneurship is thrilled to be a part of the founding and to have pledged $12,000 in funding for Titans, which Google will match for a total of $24,000 in support.
