WIT FORUM: GoodTech – Using Technology to Scale Business AND Social Impact – SOLD OUT

This event is SOLD OUT

For Women’s History Month, the CEO & Founder of GOODR and award-winning social entrepreneur, Jasmine Crowe, shares her inspiring story of how she created an app that uses blockchain technology to address both the hunger crisis and waste epidemics at scale

Jasmine Crowe, an HBCU alumna  who is working to make the world a better place one cause at a time. Jasmine’s goal is to foster change and create awareness about the leading socioeconomic issues and challenges of today, like poverty, education and hunger. She has hosted activations in more than 20 US cities and the UK and Haiti and has collected and donated over 2 million items to causes worldwide and fed over 80,000 people through the Sunday Soul Homeless feeding initiative. 

Thru her years of work feeding vulnerable populations she saw a great opportunity for technology to solve a real problem – hunger. In January of 2017, she created GOODR, a tech enabled sustainable food waste management company with a goal to eliminate hunger and reduce food waste. Under Jasmine’s direction, GOODR has now diverted over one million pounds of food from landfill and serves clients including: Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson Airport, NFL, The Georgia World Congress Center, MetLife and more.
