StartupBREW Fargo: Fred’s Dissonance + Roots Hair & Soul

June 15 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Welcome to #StartupBREW!

Celebrate Juneteenth with us on 6/15! We’ll be joined by Frederick Edwards Jr. with Fred’s Dissonance and Brenna Fisher with Roots Hair & Soul Salon!
Frederick Edwards Jr. is the founder of Fred’s Dissonance: a platform striving to build an educated and enlightened world that connects people together. Fred’s Dissonance’s mission is to recognize and uplift the true narrative of Black people across the globe by centering the voices and experiences of Black people. By providing educational cultural events and sober fun activities, this organization creates opportunities for Black and Brown communities to celebrate their uniqueness, embrace their talents, and build their legacy… ultimately leading to success.
Sharon Traylor is the cofounder and Master Barber of Roots Hair & Soul, a salon and barber shop based in Fargo, North Dakota. She is also a barber radio show host and soon-to-be barber instructor. Roots Hair & Soul is a strong advocate for natural hair and lifting up Black female entrepreneurs and change leaders in the hair industry. Their belief is that if you haven’t found the right style to work with your hair, maybe you haven’t found the right stylist that can work with your natural texture! The salon’s most popular services include loc retwisting, box braids, fades, hot oil treatments, loc detoxing, two strand twist styling, and more.
☕️ Coffee kicks off at 8:00 AM

StartupBREW believes that entrepreneurship is energized over brews, whether it’s coffee, tea, or beer. That’s why we’re dedicated to bringing entrepreneurs, founders, and innovators together – because we believe they succeed when they have access to each other and the community that supports them.
