SheWorx is the brainchild of Yin Lin and Lisa Wang. It functions as a global support community for females who are serious about entrepreneurship. At their ticketed breakfast roundtables, hosted in five cities around the world, female founders get together and learn from one another as well as a guest mentor. The mentor at each breakfast is someone who has achieved success as an entrepreneur or investor and has knowledge on what it takes to scale a business. SheWorx is about harboring an ongoing discussion on what female founders can actively do to grow their companies and potentially receive funding.
Kenyatta Griggs grew up in Los Angeles gang territory but thanks in part to a strong family support system, it did not deter him from becoming the accomplished man he is today. He was shot 6 times and left for dead but this too did not stop him from pursuing greatness. With the spirit of a true entrepreneur, Kenyatta ended up owning the same salon he was once an employee at. By acting as if and treating every client like they were a famous movie star, rapper, or artist, he eventually created his own reality and established relationships with not only entertainers but business moguls such as Damon Dash as well. While these relationships have helped Kenyatta create incredibly inspiring, useful, and intriguing video and audio content through his company, Hip Hop Motivation Corporation, they are only a part of his story. His first project under Hip Hop Motivation Corporation is titled, “Think and Ballout”. It’s a motivational audio play inspired by Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”, that Kenyatta flipped into something more relatable to the hip hop community.
