WHO WE ARE

Geeked Memphis is a launching pad for inclusion. We're a social enterprise focused on growing inclusive entrepreneurship and innovation in Memphis and throughout the Southeast through digital-first platforms, networking events, and educational programming. We leverage these channels to provide our region’s diverse innovators with opportunities for visibility, networking, and impact.

Take the Inclusive Innovators survey.

The initial goal of Geeked Memphis' Inclusive Innovators survey is to quantify diverse entrepreneurs and innovators in Memphis, as well as to gather qualitative data that will inform future Geeked Memphis programs, events and resources.
