Nerdery Announces Partnership with Amplify

MINNEAPOLIS – Oct. 11, 2022 – Nerdery, a premier digital product consultancy, announces its partnership with Amplify to support the organization’s recurring Featured Founder series highlighting and supporting the growth of entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities. These sessions amplify entrepreneurs who lack a clear pathway to funding and driving revenue for their businesses.

Amplify’s free recurring sessions bring people together through collective stories and experiences and help entrepreneurs live their mission. Recently featured entrepreneurs include Bella Lam of Coconut Whisk, Mu Okonkwo of SitEatApp and Jules Porter of Seraph7 Studios. The organization also shares information about its Featured Founders through its social media channels.

“As Amplify continues to grow, we were seeking the right partner to back our technology needs. This gives us the ability to support underrepresented founders beyond our meetups and other initiatives,” said Garrio Harrison, co-founder of Amplify. “Nerdery’s expertise in digital products coupled with their technological strength will help us connect people and resources to transform lives.”

As part of the partnership, Nerdery will cover the subscription costs for all of Amplify’s software to help make the technology side of their work possible.

“We are excited to be a part of Amplify’s platform, which supports underrepresented and underfunded founders by sharing their founder story, the vision for their business and giving them access to partners that can help their companies take flight.” said Michael Schmidt, CEO, Co-Founder, and Board Vice Chair, Nerdery. “We strongly believe in their work which supports our mission to relentlessly invent a world that works better for us all.” To learn more about Amplify, please visit
