DoneRight Barbering

I have been obsessed with barbering since I was a kid, watching my dad as a barber. My goal is to eventually own a barbershop franchise with multiple locations across the country, servicing clients and managing shops with my dad

The MediTracker is a wearable tech device with a QR code attached to it that, when scanned by an EMT or Paramedic, brings up the holder’s important Medical Information. That way, if the holder is ever incapacitated or unable to give medical professionals their relevant Medical info, such as allergies, diabetes, or other medical conditions, the doctors can be well-informed on the patient they are treating in an emergency situation.

Rebeca Velie Photography

My venture is an engagement and wedding photography service based out of New Hampshire but serving the Northeast and beyond. My photography style is airy and bright and I focus primarily on capturing candid moments for my couples without being too overly imposing or distracting from the moment. My main focus is making the process up to the event as easy and straightforward as possible.

My plan is to establish an agency that will help propel small businesses to the next level. Branding is as important as ever, and oftentimes the sleekest companies are the most competitive ones. Rondas aims to help small business owners find their look so that they won’t get overpowered by companies that are able to spend exorbitant sums of money on brand identities. By working with these companies, we hope it will help them attract more customers, increase revenue, and ultimately keep our neighborhoods full of small businesses, rather than large, faceless ones.

Right now, there’s no good place to talk about books online. Wondri’s striving to change that by offering an online space where readers, thinkers, and thought leaders can connect with one another by exploring your favorite books, authors, and other related topics. Come join the conversation @ wondri.com!

As the founder of CoilyCurlsOrganics, I plan to market an exclusive line of organic natural hair products. The current problem is that affordable high-quality products that are safe for wavy to kinky hair have yet to be created, so through CCO, I am committing to encouraging people, especially black women, all over the world to accept their natural selves with healthier methods for styling hair.

Freedom Bar

Freedom Bar is an allergen-free, high-quality vegan protein bar made for any type of superwoman. Each bar is supplemented with a daily multivitamin along with a specific vitamin or mineral that supplements women’s health needs in some way, whether that’s iron due to low iron levels, Collagen for hair and skin health, or melatonin to have a better night sleep.

JC Physical Therapy+

JCPT+ is a physical therapy practice dedicated to restoring, improving, and decreasing pain for each and every individual that we provide care for. We also offer support addressing mental health as the mental journey is just as, if not more important, than the physical one.

LOL is the first dating site to use science to match people based on a sense of humor compatibility. It will lead to more meaningful relationships than other dating sites that focus exclusively on superficial qualities, like physical attractiveness. LOL is the dating site that brings you Lots Of Love while you Laugh Out Loud.

Quiver Keeper

It’s a product that tracks cycling component wear and tear by using a rider’s GPS data. Riders will be notified that they should service a component once it’s due for maintenance based on how many hours/miles they’ve ridden. This keeps riders getting the most out of their bikes in terms of up-time, money spent, and minimizing waste from improper maintenance.

Reindeer Transport

My company provides services that ensure the efficient transportation of goods from warehouses to retailers. . A majority of times the trucks are almost empty and by maximizing this space we will be able to improve delivery time. Our app will help connect retailers and drivers and allow them to complete multiple deliveries at once while providing the drivers with the fastest and route.
