Thinkific’s Think in Color 2022 Summit Delivers Inspiration and Key Tools to Women of Color Entrepreneurs

More than 900 participants have enrolled in the Think in Color accelerator program, a free 8-week program that provides participants with a 90-day trial of Thinkific's Pro + Growth Plan and ongoing training to build or scale their online learning business.

Thinkific Labs Inc. is the platform shaking up the knowledge economy. Thinkific empowers creators to create, market and sell their online learning products. They just shared results from Think in Color 2022. The virtual summit on July 27th featured a roster of 100 percent women of color. They all delivered practical, expert insights that address the real challenges faced by women of color entrepreneurs.

“We are thrilled with the success of Think in Color,” said Greg Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of Thinkific. “Registrations are up over 20 percent from last year. We continue to see growing interest and engagement from knowledge commerce creators. We feel honored to play our part in creating a more inclusive and representative space in the creator economy. The Think in Color Summit is one of the ways we live our core values. We provide practical resources and tools and build community to support women of color on their entrepreneurial journey.”

Over the course of the event, attendees:

  • Learned from Lisa Nichols, Founder and CEO of Motivating the Masses, Inc. about creating an abundance mindset and why shifting mindset is fundamental to business success
  • Were inspired by three creators of color, Ellie DiopKiaundra Jackson and Malle Naehu, who shared the stories of their business journeys and how they overcame the unique challenges facing women of color entrepreneurs, including financing, handling requests for free work and racial privilege in entrepreneurship
  • Watched Grammy-award winning singer, Chrisette Michele, launch and perform her new single, Home and share her experiences and learnings on facing rejection while pursuing your purpose
  • Connected with each other through the online Think in Color community group, which has over 5,000 members

To further support women entrepreneurs, Thinkific is contributing $1 per registration to funding entrepreneurs through IFundWomen.
