Rethinking Entrepreneurship



Twende is Kiswahili for “let’s go.” It’s our rally cry here at the EC. It represents the vibrant passion and strategy of Nashville’s entrepreneurs who continuously strive to grow their businesses. It’s also the name of the EC’s program dedicated to leveling the playing field for entrepreneurs of color.

This show is a production of the EC, and it’s all about engaging in open and honest conversations with incredible Black and LatinX business experts, investors and other successful founders located throughout Tennessee, and other parts of the United States.

In each episode, we’ll talk to successful founders and entrepreneurial innovators of color about the peaks and valleys of their journeys. We’ll also illuminate the hurdles and opportunities that exist within the larger world of startups, venture capital, and business more broadly.
