Dawn Dickson: Blackgirl Magic in Technology

Dawn W. Dickson is the epitome of black girl magic, a strong black woman and serial entrepreneur with over 16 years of experience in marketing and business development.

Dickson has launched four successful cash flow positive companies since 2002, her most recent ventures Flat Out of Heels (rollable flats for women to get relief from painful heels) and PopCom after identifying a need to develop a software solution to make vending machines more intelligent.
