ANTIONETTE | "I'm ecstatic to be named a Camelback Ventures Fellow. Joining the Camelback Ventures community isn't just about building our business or brand, but also about expanding our community to include individuals that continue to overcome systemic barriers and obstacles due to our identities. It is rare in the national startup space to connect with founders through more than professional opportunities and challenges, but also personal and cultural understanding. #wakandaforeva."
