In our hometown of Memphis, TN and inspired by the need for community building after culturally negative events of that year, our team began work on a social media app to bring people together.
We actively pursued knowledge and skillsets critical to launching our social media app by immersing ourselves in the Los Angeles, CA and Washington, D.C. tech communities.
We used our new abilities to code apps and design marketing campaigns to prepare for the launch of our social media app.
During Black History Month, we hosted a mobile app launch party and T-shirt giveaway in Nashville, TN that was significantly supported by Fisk and Tennessee State University students.
We steadily grew our social media app to thousands of users, but lacked paying memberships and investors that could financially support the long-term growth of a free platform.
Aiming to still produce impactful technology at an affordable price, we pivoted our team's efforts toward researching mobile app business models that are not dependent on free users and investors.
We launched our first B2B tech company, XPRESS Tech Creations LLC, initially focused on developing affordable mobile apps for food businesses.
We steadily gain food business clients, located in a variety of cities, who's customers benefit from the ease of a food ordering app. We continue to work towards expanding our reach of business types that could evolve from our mobile app services.
