A semi-regular roundup of all things urbanism, economic development, and good old-fashioned city building. Written by Lucas Lindsey.
Here in Tallahassee, we believe in entrepreneurship as a force for community and economic development. That’s hardly been more evident than it was on November 30th. That morning, I was given a humbling opportunity by our city’s Chamber. They asked me to tell the story of entrepreneurship in Tallahassee, and then we put three Domi startups on stage to pitch their hearts out. On top of it all, the crowd took a vote and awarded $1,000 to the winning team (many thanks to the generosity of Centennial Bank). It was a day I’ll never forget.
I’m thankful for the support of friends, family, and Domi’s team as I use my work and my days to explore this stuff. The momentum is real. The future is bright. I don’t just hope that–I know it. Onward.
Entrepreneurs like Jasmine Anderson are the future of our community.
