After working vigorously to help a grant program come to life, Taylor Dent realized an important fact: much of a program's success relies on effective storytelling. If your target audience understand how your service or product fills a need in their lives, they will find use in it and believe it its message. From that point, Taylor set out to serve Black and Brown organizations, small businesses and entrepreneurs in ways to support online visibility.
