We've all been there: you're at a red light for what feels like eternity, wondering if you have time to type out a quick text message or rummage through your glove compartment before the light turns green. Or you turn down a road in a city you've never visited, unaware of the speed limit. Or you drive toward a stop light, only to slam on your brakes as it turns red.

CēVē, a Tampa-based transportation technology company, has officially launched its app this week after originally starting in an Atlanta pitch competition in Nov. 2019. Its founder, David Aylesworth, got the call to participate from a friend who knew he was interested in the transportation sector. "It was just a chance opportunity," Aylesworth said. "I knew someone in Atlanta that worked in transportation and when it came up, he told me about it. We threw an app together in a week." Originally working in the defense industry with

Two Atlanta-based organizations known for assisting underrepresented founders have joined forces to raise the stakes for women founders. Launchpad2X, a founder-to-CEO accelerator program for women entrepreneurs, announced a partnership with Zane Venture Fund, a $10 million fund created to support founders with diverse teams. According to LaunchPad2X President Christy Brown, who joined the organization in May, the partnership is designed to provide capital for LP2X companies and bring candidates to Zane for funding. "We simply find value in what they're programming," Brown said. "They have a culture of creating platforms that teach founders. We see them as a pipeline for LaunchPad." The relationship happened organically, thanks to a professional relationship between Atlanta angel investor and Zane Ventures partner Sig Mosley and LaunchPad2X founder Bernie Dixon. The partnership will support early-stage founders looking for outside capital to grow their businesses, according to a news
