Here’s a list of some fabulous, intelligent and entrepreneurial women who have built some of the most impressive and ingenious businesses out of nothing. These women have helped countless communities and solved major problems with their technology-based businesses. 

Jasmine Crowe

“I’m really motivated by all the naysayers. As long as you’re going after something that you love, you shouldn’t give up on your dreams. That’s the biggest thing” says Crowe. 

She launched her brand, Goodr, in 2017. Goodr is an Atlanta based, sustainable surplus food management platform that leverages technology with a goal to reduce food waste and combat hunger. The platform provides an end to end logistic solution to pick up and donate excess food and distribute it to underprivileged communities. Crowe started out as a solo entrepreneur in a one-bedroom apartment; despite facing a lot of doubt from investors, the venture is now valued at over $12 million. We commend this hunger hero and business savvy do-“Goodr”!
