We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Twiggs, Dr. Sharon, and Ted Fells and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, Dr. Sharon, Ted, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Founders, Eric M. Twiggs, Dr. Sharon H. Porter, and Ted Fells noticed a trend of people giving up on their ventures during the Pandemic. We literally said to ourselves, ” what now?’. The What Now Movement was born. The mission of the What Now Movement is to inspire people to pivot when they face a challenge instead of stopping.
From the What Now Movement, the business, WNM Ventures, LLC was organized.. Through WNMVentures we consult, provide training, and technical assistance to federal government agencies, private industry businesses, and educational institutions.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets WNM Ventures apart is our team of international partners and subject-matter experts. We pride ourselves on the diversity within the organization including race, gender, and background.
We host What Now University, a seven-week course with masterclass instructors. Topics range from business finance, marketing, media, to banking and, legal services. WNM Ventures will also sponsor a Master Mind group in 2022.
While WNM Ventures is headquartered in the Washington DC metropolitan area, our members, partners, and team can be found globally.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We would like to shout-out, The 30-Minute Hour Podcast, NuCore Vision, Perfect Time SHP Publishing, Customer 1st Marketing, Dawn Marie Bornheimer, and Darrius Jerome Gourdine for their contributions to the What Now Movement and WNM Ventures, LLC.
