Ask me about speaking.

Brit Fitzpatrick is the Founder & CEO of MentorMe. MentorMe is building a more collective future through technology that makes mentorship easier, more productive, and more impactful. Its clients and partners include the Memphis Grizzlies, Opportunity Nation, and the State of New York.

As an American Express Top 50 under 40 in social enterprise, Brit has a demonstrated track record of identifying innovative ways to intersect emerging technology with scalable social impact.

Brit started her first entrepreneurial venture at seven years old during a summer spent at her Granny's house. Her big idea? Selling ice cream to neighborhood kids who'd missed the ice-cream truck. Unfortunately, this quickly growing business came to a screeching halt after she was found guilty (admittedly) of selling her products for unreasonable markups and sold a bomb pop to a neighborhood kid for $20. Lesson learned: parents want their change.

Brit has been invited to speak on entrepreneurship; social enterprise; mentorship; and diversity in entrepreneurship and technology at conferences across the U.S. — including Dreamforce, White House Demo Day, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Summit. Her work has been profiled in national media outlets — including GOOD Magazine, Inc. Magazine, FastCompany, and Madame Noire.

A passionate advocate for diversity, Brit also leads efforts to help grow inclusive entrepreneurship and innovation in the Southeast.

Brit is a proud honors graduate of Howard University and holds a Master's in digital media marketing from the University of Memphis, where she earned a competitive full scholarship and graduated at the top of her class.

A Louisville, KY native, Brit cites her “hometown hero” Muhammad Ali as one her greatest influences.
