About this event

Startup Grind

Startup Grind is one of the biggest communities of entrepreneurs in partnership with Google for Startups. Our mission is to help every entrepreneur in the world. We do so by hosting a monthly recurring event to inspire, educate, and connect entrepreneurs.

About The Event

There is one thing most entrepreneurs can agree on – entrepreneurship is hard and building a business is one of the most difficult challenges you will ever take on. How do you manage the seemingly never-ending path of setbacks and roadblocks?

The answer is resilience and a resilient mindset – the ability to adapt in the face of adversity. 

Join us for a discussion on resilience and how to weather the inevitable obstacles you will face on your entrepreneurial journey. 

The Speaker

Sevetri Wilson is a serial entrepreneur and the Founder of two companies, Solid Ground Innovations (SGI) and, most recently, Resilia, a New Orleans-based technology startup. She bootstrapped her first company, SGI, to seven figures with zero capital, and raised over $3M for her second company, Resilia, which launched to the public in 2016. She is the first Black woman in New Orleans to raise over $1M in venture capital.

In 2010, she was honored with the Nobel Prize for public service, the Jefferson Award and was featured in the Senate report to the White House on volunteerism in America during the Obama administration.

Sevetri has been featured in Forbes, Black Enterprise, Essence, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, CNN and other news outlets for her work in business and technology.
