About the presenters:
Founded by LaToya Johnson, AwayZone is a location-based travel application that helps businesses more easily connect with consumers who have specialized cultural needs in unfamiliar areas. This "Yelp for minority consumers and business owners" attempts to support a market of 127+ million racial, ethnic and religious minority consumers and 8 million minority-owned small businesses in the United States. The app was recently launched in the Google Play store, making this the perfect opportunity to provide feedback in it's early stage.
Under the Sun Market is rethinking how to make food accessible in Indianapolis. Their business flips the idea of a conventional grocery on its head, using Food Recovery to buy and sell food at a low cost. This allows UTS to position sustainable stores in communities that traditional grocers have left. As they replicate this model throughout Indianapolis, they hope to empower local community members to join them and be a part of the solution to decreasing food insecurity.
