Event description

Description

Jewel Burks Solomon is the co-founder of Partpic, an app designed to streamline the purchase of maintenance and repair parts using computer vision technology, Jewel and her team built groundbreaking technology poised to change the way people everywhere locate products. Partpic raised more than $2 million in seed funding to integrate its proprietary technology into mobile apps and websites of parts distributors and retailers. And then, Partpic was acquired by Amazon in 2016.

From Nashville to the world of technology and venture capital to one of the world's largest companies, we're going to get the details on how she managed to turn her idea into a company sought after by Amazon. We'll also hear her views on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the tech space.

Burks Solomon will sit down with Black in Tech Nashville co-founder Fallon S. Wilson, PhD to share her story and give insight to attendees on how she did it.

Lunch will be served during this session.

Parking will be available for a fee through the garage at the Nashville City Club.
