In 2016, Janique Edwards moved to Brooklyn and wanted to find Black-owned restaurants in her new neighborhood. Janique and Anthony (then boyfriend, now husband) had the idea to create the EatOkra app and launched the first version in 2017. Today they have more that 450,000+ downloads, 9,000+ listings, and a market place. On this episode, Tech Bites host Jennifer Leuzzi talks with returning guest Anthony Edwards Jr, Co-Founder, CEO and CTO, and Jason Wallace, Director of Business Solutions, about the just launched 2.5-million dollar investment round on Wefunder, that values EatOkra at 17-million dollars.
