About our founder

Hi, I’m Kristin and I've supported hundreds of underESTIMATED non-technical founders to incubate and launch their tech business.

Are you next?

$147 billion in venture capital was invested in US startups in just the first half of 2021. Black founders received only 1.2% of those investments. 

Let's change that.

Tech AF is a movement. We’re sick of that status quo.  The tech industry needs more diversity. It needs a lower tech-bro-ratio. It needs more people with different life experiences, backgrounds, gender-identities, skin colors, abilities, and perspectives.

Resources exist for underestimated founders, but require you to have a product in the market with paying customers. Getting to this stage is HARD. Especially if you've never done it before.

I've been in the trenches myself. At 27, I taught myself everything I needed to know to build my first tech business. Of course, I made a ton of mistakes along the way. But plenty of incredible people pushed me, too. More importantly, I refused to take no for an answer and blazed my own path.

I went head first into a ten year journey that resulted in raising more than $55M in funding and going through the experience of having that business acquired, twice.

Since then I’ve advised and supported hundreds of underrepresented founders through a variety of Atlanta's leading startup programs. Many of these founders have gone on to raise venture capital and implement growth strategies for scale.

With Tech AF, I've developed a proprietary five-part system based on my unique experience that streamlines the path from idea to a fundable business.

If you have a scalable tech idea and don’t know what to do next - apply today and let's talk!
