Kudos to Apple and Southern Company for a combined $50 million investment in the Propel Center initiative, and to Ed Farm for their leadership. I’m sure HBCU students across the country will benefit from this. As a board member of Corner To Corner, I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of community-based initiatives that support entrepreneurship and innovation. Since last summer, I’ve been in conversations with local stakeholders about developing something similar for the North Nashville community and HBCU ecosystem. Their interest in this goes beyond the community level. Corporate and state-level leaders believe in this.
It can happen for our community, and I strongly believe it will. I’m going to do my part to see this come to fruition so that generations to come can reap the benefits. You can also be a part of the conversation around this vision. On Wednesday, February 24th at 7pm CST, my brother Joshua Mundy will host a virtual discussion on The Need for an Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub in North Nashville. This is part of a larger fundraiser for Oz Arts Nashville, an awesome organization run by my good friend Tim Ozgener. I encourage you to attend and hear why this is important for our community. #HBCUentrepreneurship #HBCUinnovation
