Joey Womack, Goodie Nation’s co-founder, came into Seen from the INside studio to chat about getting people involved with idea phase and then implementing in the hackathon phase. The mission of Goodie Nation is to build tribes of change makers and entrepreneurs to engage in an innovative process to help under-served communities globally. Womack said that in 2017, Goodie Nation will focus on gun violence and creating “real-time solutions to reduce gun violence.” Currently, teams of volunteers are brainstorming ideas on how to reduce violence, later in the year, Goodie Nation will have hackathon events where DJ’s will spin hip-hop music while mostly young people work to create marketable products and services from generated ideas. Listen in to hear Joey talk about the why he started a nonprofit, his motivation to keep it going (though more and more it is like running a business) and real joy from Goodie Nation.
