Blavity: Jeff Nelson (RBS ’06)

Jeff Nelson – 2006 Ron Brown Scholar, Advisory Board Member, and Co-Founder of ⁠Blavity⁠⁠ – became an entrepreneur before he even knew it was a term. After stumbling into computer science as a major and software engineering as a career, his knack for problem-solving led him and his college classmates to launch their own Black media tech company. What started as a content platform named after the cultural experience of Black students at predominantly white institutions has now grown into a Google Venture-backed holding company of Black Millennial and Gen Z brands including ⁠AfroTech⁠, ⁠21Ninety⁠, ⁠Blavity360°⁠, ⁠Home & Texture⁠, ⁠Shadow and Act⁠, ⁠Talent Infusion⁠, and ⁠Travel Noire⁠.
