Felicia Jackson and her start-up named CPRWrap Inc. have been selected to participate in Cohort 15 of the Washington, DC-based Halcyon Incubator. The Chattanooga company is one of eight selected for the latest fellowship that begins in September.
As described on the organization’s webpage, Halcyon is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose signature programs are fellowships designed to equip early stage social entrepreneurs with tools and relationships they need to achieve scalable, lasting impact. “More broadly, we seek to mold the business world to be a more inclusive, impact-oriented place. Since our founding in 2017, Halcyon has worked closely with creators and innovators to understand their ecosystems, identify their needs, and explore new programs and partnerships to meet those needs, with everything from a network of angel investors to By The People, an experimental platform for art events and exhibitions.”
The organization’s flagship program is the 18-month Halcyon Incubator fellowship where a diverse cohort of fellows receives free residency and workspace, mentorship and leadership coaching, robust support from business consultants, and a living stipend to develop their entrepreneurial vision.
Last month, we noted that Jackson was one of two East Tennesseans added to the overall listing of the “Forbes Next 1000″ honorees for 2021. She founded the company to help guide laypeople during an emergency situation understand how to administer CPR.
