Co-Founders Netta Dobbins and Bianca Jeanty often found themselves as the only people in PR that didn’t have a network catered to them. They decided to fix this by launching Mimconnect, short for Minorities in Media connect. It’s an HR social networking platform for media professionals that’s community first. There are some companies geared towards job placement and minorities, none of them are concentrated on this sector. “We focus on people first, we’re not company first like LinkedIn,” said Dobbins. They’ve landed big big clients looking to have a larger stake in this community, including Getty Images and Translation. In addition to helping mid-level and senior-level media people find new gigs, they’re also focused on community building and educational resources. “Black and brown people in the industry are very competitive and possess great power when we reach back and pull each other up.” The company has been steadily growing over the past two years and has thousands of users across the country.
