As a part of the LatinX Incubator program, LiveEquipd founder, Andre Johnson, participated in 1871’s rigorous PYROS core curriculum that features four different tracks tailored to meet each company’s needs: Explore, Build, Launch, and Grow. He also received constant feedback and networking with Latinx peers, one-on-one coaching with the Latinx Incubator Entrepreneur-in-Residence, and curated sessions and resources dedicated to the unique experience of being a Latinx tech startup founder.
LiveEquipd was one of nine participants in the 2019 LatinX Incubator program. The entrepreneurs introduced ideas from a range of industries, including healthcare, finance and hospitality.
