About this event

More about Steven:

Mantra: to bridge diverse communities.

Get to the right resource, at the right time. What problem are you solving and for who exactly? Do you know the people that can move your business forward? What is your goal? I partner with you to answer these questions and build out a "made to order" personalized acton plan.

In 2014, I made the leap towards the entrepreneurship space, learning alongside a diverse cast from nascent innovators and entrepreneurs turned angel investors to industry experts and ESHIP ecosystem builders across the globe. I am passionate about building entrepreneurial communities for the new majority through strategic collaborations and filling gaps in entrepreneurial services.

I leverage my 10 years of inspiring brand, interactive marketing and community building experience to help people and companies nurture relationships, tie their efforts to ROI, and accelerate revenue. Integrating your mission and vision, bridging cultural competence, and understanding your unique value proposition, is critical to engage authentically, consistently, and effectively.

Every year, my goals change to create impact. My interactive marketing agency BloomShift has a mission to double the size of 500 small businesses by 2023, providing diverse initiatives from Small Business Technical Assistance to Business Development and Entrepreneurship (ESHIP) Ecosystem building.

I am an international speaker and have worked with organizations such as WeWork, World Bank, Techstars, Global Entrepreneurship Network, Gallaudet University, Halcyon House, 1776 in DC, Freelancers Union Spark DC, CMX Hub, and more.
