EP 10: How to Position Yourself for Opportunity, Government Contracts, New Orleans and Why I Give Back with Sevetri Wilson


Sevetri Wilson is the embodiment of hustle. Sevetri is a serial entrepreneur and the Founder of two companies, Solid Ground Innovations (SGI) and, most recently, Resilia, a New Orleans-based technology startup. Sevetri bootstrapped her first company, SGI, to seven figures with zero capital, and she raised over $3MM for her second company, Resilia, which launched to the public in 2016. She is the first Black woman in New Orleans to raise over $1MM in venture capital. In 2010, she was honored with the Nobel Prize for public service, the Jefferson Award and was featured in the Senate report to the White House on volunteerism in America during the Obama administration. Sevetri has been featured in Forbes, Black Enterprise, Essence, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, CNN and other news outlets for her work in business and technology. 

In 2019, she released her first book Solid Ground: How I Built a 7-Figure Company with Zero Capital, which spent six weeks at No. 1 on Amazon’s Startup category. In 2021, a second book Resilient: How to Overcome Anything and Build a Million Dollar Business With or Without Capital was released.
