Domi Station is excited to announce Hannah King as its new Director of Entrepreneurship, beginning February 2019. Hannah has been a member at Domi since 2016 as an entrepreneur herself and has also been involved in a variety of entrepreneurship programs locally and nationally. She is the founder of Woven Futures, an ethical fashion company that links the world’s most remote artisan groups to the U.S. fashion market through sustainable supply-chains and fair-trade.
“As an entrepreneur, Hannah brings a unique perspective to our entrepreneur development and incubation programs. We are excited about the plans we have laid out to scale up our programs, on top of the foundation of Domi’s work since 2014, and the opportunity to leverage the growing entrepreneurship ecosystem and partners in Tallahassee,” said Antonio Montoya, Domi’s Executive Director.
Hannah has participated in Domi’s Get-Started Program, Innovation Park’s Entrepreneurship Excellence Program, and is a Future Founders Fellow - a competitive national fellowship based in Chicago that accelerates startups and develops founders around the nation. This past November, Hannah was named the winner for the GSEA Entrepreneurs Organization regional competition in Florida. Hannah’s extensive involvement in her venture and entrepreneurial ecosystems exemplifies her passion for the field and places her perfectly as Director of Entrepreneurship.
“I first came to Domi in 2016 where I met other entrepreneurs who quickly became like family. I’ve seen the power of community that this space has, from meeting friends who taught me the basics of coding to having a sounding board when I needed it. That kind of culture kept me at Domi for years and is ultimately the reason I’m staying in Tallahassee; to keep fostering community and space for entrepreneurs to thrive.” Said, Ms. King.
Hannah’s journey in entrepreneurship began in her home country Guatemala where she began Woven Futures after meeting several talented textile artisans. Seeing how unique their craft was, she began to search for ways to connect artisans to the U.S. markets while also helping them rise above poverty through fair and sustainable income avenues. She was awarded 1st Place Social Enterprise at the FSU InNOLEvation Challenge in 2016 and has continued growing her venture since.
