[Charlotte, NC]: Beyond Normal Podcast today announced a new partnership with VelourIt. This partnership will provide sponsorship opportunity to the podcast with highlighting collaborations from a curated list of entrepreneurs.
“VelourIt is an example of how to create a company that drives value with a purpose. It’s going to be exciting to highlight business with an incredible purpose in partnership with VelourIt ” says Kenny Groom, Host at Beyond Normal Podcast. In addition he states “Brooke is embedded in many entrepreneur groups that represent or serve causes that speak to equitable representation for the underrepresented. This partnership will allow us to connect with all stakeholders in the ecosystem that impacts minority entrepreneurs.”
“I will be forever grateful to you Kenneth for giving us the opportunity to highlight people who are making a difference in the world. We don’t always give our heroes their roses while they’re here and that’s what I feel like we’re doing with the Beyond Normal Podcast,” said Brooke Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer of VelourIt.
Using highly visible platforms like YouTube and Facebook Live means we’re reaching investors and limited partners around the world effortlessly. Brooke said, “2020 forever changed the way investors interact, engage with, and learn about startups while working from home, remotely, and over Zoom. We’re moving away from the physical Silicon Valley to a more conceptualized version where we reference “Silicon Valley” to mean the ecosystem of technology. Moving forward, I think we’ll say “Silicon Valley” to mean the industry of technology startups regardless if it’s in Austin, New York, San Francisco, or on the other side of the globe.”
The benefits of this new partnership include.
Highlighting and featuring a curated list of entrepreneurs doing incredible work
Engage community stakeholders in the entrepreneur ecosystem
Change the narrative on minority founders
Build awareness of global distribution for underserved manufacturers with VelourIt
