Dashible Gets Major Boost from MetaBronx Accelerator Acceptance

Program Will Enhance Dashible’s Branding Strategy and Competitiveness

New York – Dashible, Inc. news that it had been accepted into the prestigious MetaBronx Accelerator program, the second accelerator program that has seen tremendous promise in this fast-rising startup. With support from the NYC Department of Education, Village Capital and Travelers among others, each year MetaBronx picks six startups with principals from underrepresented communities for a six-month curriculum focused on enhancing branding strategy, market competitiveness and corporate structure.

MetaBronx focuses on startups—like Dashible—that “solve problems of the 99%”. Dashible Co-Founder Marvin Johnson had this to say about being selected for the program: "We are happy to have made it through MetaBronx’s rigorous selection process and be selected to participate in the Winter 2020 cohort. We are already seeing the value in this relationship. During our needs analysis with the MetaBronx principals we uncovered several areas where MetaBronx can help us improve immediately.”

MetaBronx was attracted to Dashible’s unique technological solution for bringing customers and merchants together by giving people an easy-to-use app on which local merchants post daily in- store deals. The MetaBronx program will culminate in June with presentations to over 400 investors, entrepreneurs and corporate partners.

Miguel Sanchez and Philip Shearer, Co-founders at MetaBronx, said “We are so pleased to work with Dashible as part of the Winter 2020 cohort. We received a plethora of applications from highly compelling startups and had to make some really tough decisions to settle on six, which gives you a sense of how exceptional the cohort is. Dashible stood out based on the experience of the founders and the fact that they have been able to introduce a product in the market and get traction on limited financial resources. Their market is enormous and we’re going to mobilize our network to make sure they grow as fast as they can.”

About Dashible, Inc.: Dashible is a mobile O2O (online to offline) platform created to efficiently bring merchants and consumers together, using a unique approach that lets consumers view local merchant promotions currently offered exclusively via Dashible. Dashible currently operates within New York City. Dashible is the brainchild of the Co-Founders Marvin Johnson, a United States Navy veteran, and Tony Carter, a veteran of the United States Air Force.

Gentleman's Factory: Co-working, networking and community for men of color

February 15, 2020


Gentlemen’s Factory began once Jeff Lindor realized that everywhere he went, he had to “fit in.”

And, so, the co-working space for men of color was born. Founded in 2014, it’s more than just a professional network and a makeshift office: It’s also a community.

“There aren’t necessarily places that ‘fit me’,”Lindor explained to Yahoo Finance. “As a result, I founded the Gentlemen’s Factory because that’s not only a situation I encounter. I realized that so many other black and brown men face that same reality.” Read More
