Birmingham tech startup Mixtroz has reached $1 million in funding, a heady milestone for the company that moved its headquarters to the Magic City. The funding also means that mother-daughter founders Kerry Schrader and Ashlee Ammons have joined the exclusive circle of black female entrepreneurs to close $1 million in seed funding.
Mixtroz, a platform founded by a mother-daughter tech duo, raised $1 million in seed funding, becoming one of only 40 Black female founders to hit this fundraising mark.
The nonprofit Birmingham organization called Bronze Valley creates educational and organization opportunities for underrepresented communities, and at its first conference earlier this year a start-up called Mixtroz won $100,000 in the Rise of the Rest, a competition funded by the former AOL chief executive Steve Case. The Nashville-based mother-daughter team behind Mixtroz plan to relocate to Birmingham to develop their networking app.
