Why I Decided to Sell NewME and What I Learned From It

In March of 2018 I decided that the upcoming accelerator would be my last. It had been 7 years and NewME had already become, and made far more impact, than I had ever imagined. It started out as a project that took on a life of it’s own that I had to develop into a self-sustaining business. I learned a lot of life lessons but most importantly I learned a lot of business lessons from that process. I’m proud of the path we paved but, in 2018, looking at the landscape of activity around black tech the work seemed duplicative.
