Break-out session discussing economic development and growth opportunities in the City of Atlanta.

The ‘Creative Industries Loan and Content Creation’ session hosted by Invest Atlanta and the City of Atlanta’s Film and Entertainment Office appealed to entrepreneurs within the film, music, entertainment, and fashion industries. Invest Atlanta asked content creators “how are local content creators getting access to the money being generating in the city from the film and entertainment industry?” Thus, leading to the announcement of the $1.2 million Creative Industries Loan Program.

Founder and Publisher of Rolling Out’s parent company Steed Media Group, Munson Steed kept the audience energized, promoting a healthy dose of optimism, reality, education, and wisdom.

Day two of the conference began with a conversation led by Chief Diversity Officer at eBay, Damien Hopper-Campbell. Followed by more engaging breakout sessions and a discussion around mental health and going through your process with radio personality and author, Charlamagne Tha God. RIDE is a skill-building conference gathering innovative influencers in media, business, and tech to empower the next generation of digital leaders. The conference succeeds in its mission.
