TechDigiPro Live is excited to announce a fireside chat with Ryan Glover, Co-Founder of Greenwood Bank, as part of our TechDigiPro Live: Atlanta virtual event on June 7.
Glover will sit down with me, Dominic-Madori Davis, at 2:05 ET to discuss ‘Equality Economics’: A conversation about the history of financial inequality within the Black community and how the Greenwood team is working from Atlanta to increase opportunities for communities that have historically been economically discriminated against.
Greenwood Bank has become one of the best known black-owned financial services institutions in the country. Founded by Killer Mike, Andrew Young and Glover shortly after the 2020 murder of George Floyd, the bank is renowned for its dedication to social justice. It is named after the neighborhood once considered ‘Black Wall Street’ in Tusla, which was burned down by white supremacists in the 1920s. Shortly before this massacre, Atlanta had its own, which he saw his black communityon the precipice of economic success, burn to the ground.
The narrative of building generational wealth and running a black business has always been one of trying, building, trying, and rebuilding. It’s what makes institutions like Greenwood so important to the community; it is what makes your lasting effort a matter of importance. Perhaps, in that case, it is an indication that things will be different this time.
Find us online right here at TechDigiPro to chat with Glover and see.
This fireside is part of a larger program focused on the Atlanta startup community. Atlanta has long been home to a vibrant ecosystem of entrepreneurs and investors, and we’re excited to highlight the area during this three-hour event.
