Ashley G. Scott
I'm passionate about building communities and serving as a resource for individuals who want to continue their education or launch a career in tech. As a natural connector I initiate and strengthen outreach programs, foster business and community partnerships, and connect individual members of diverse communities. I truly believe that when working together, we are better.
You can learn more about me through my work with MatchBOX Coworking Studio. At MatchBOX I serve as Operations Manager and am working to transform a small town in Indiana into a premier destination where you'll want to launch your technology startup.
I also worked to expand the tech pipeline through my role with digitalundivided where I served as Program Associate. In this position I managed existing outreach initiatives and worked to develop new ones. At DID my goal was to increase the number of urban entrepreneurs in the digital space.
I'm the founder of www.CurlyInCollege.com - the premier online destination for students seeking the latest news on natural hair care and related lifestyle trends. I also run Ashley G. Scott Consulting where I focus on content management, digital strategy for small business owners, event management, community building, and program management for social enterpirses and nonprofit organizations as well.
In my spare time, I run a group called The Black Professionals of Greater Lafayette, moderated a panel at SXSW, and organize a pop-up workshop series called Bloom: Where Girls Go to Grow. I've won a few awards (like Top 10 Under 40) and have been featured on TV and in print/digital news.
