Change makers. Innovators. Boundary Breakers. In our partnership with Black Innovation Alliance, we went on the hunt for 6 people making a difference with Typeform or VideoAsk—and we weren’t disappointed.
Our winners aren’t just using Typeform in new and interesting ways. They’ve found ways to be forces for good, with each of them creating opportunities for communities that are typically underrepresented. Hear from our winners, and learn more about their work, in the stories below.
Breonna Vereen is the founder of Imani Cowrie, a 3D printed jewelry collection that makes lightweight statement earrings. Using Typeform, she’s onboarded her first intern, collected customer feedback, and plans to hire more employees as her business grows.
Dominique Luster uses Typeform to uplift Black history. Her business, The Luster Company, is an archival service that creates African American family trees and oral histories. With Typeform, Dominique builds trust quickly with new clients as they share their unique stories.
