Derrick L. Johnson (2013 Mentor)
Last year, Derrick L. Johnson and his teammates won first place at the Milwaukee’s inaugural Startup Weekend. Johnson continues fostering entrepreneurial talent as Founder & Director of Dream MKE, an initiative dedicated to developing a culture of innovation in underserved communities in Milwaukee.
Dream MKE has a goal to develop pathways for individuals who have ideas, but don’t know the next steps—people who have transferable skills but lack the opportunity, and others who are simply looking to leverage technology to change the world. Dream MKE believes that by integrating modern technologies into underserved communities, we can create positive systemic change.
