What does entrepreneurship mean to you?
Entrepreneurship is my way of making a positive impact on the world.
What advice can you offer to entrepreneurs?
One of the hardest things to do is to gather enough self confidence to ask someone to pay you for your product, but never forget that you are valuable, you are talented, and you are worth it.
Has your company participated in any pitch competitions, accelerators or incubators?
Yes, we participated in the ENI 4201 course, Startup Incubation, taught by Entrepreneur in Residence, Ken Mathis. He actually encouraged us to apply to Main Street.
Have you always been entrepreneurial?
Yes, I started EKAT Productions in middle school by making end of season slideshows for my brother’s soccer club and selling the DVDs to the other soccer parents.
How has Georgia State supported you in your entrepreneurial journey?
I enrolled at Georgia State with the goal of learning how to grow my business. When I arrived, I was overwhelmed with the amount of opportunities available. Working as a Student Assistant Video Editor in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) helped me learn so much about editing and my business. Also, taking entrepreneurship classes and participating in programs through LaunchGSU and ENI have played a tremendous role in developing the skills I have today.
