Hajj Flemings, Founder and CEO of Brand Camp University

Bio

In 2011, Hajj Flemings was one of eight entrepreneurs selected for the CNN’s Black in America 4: The New Promised Land: Silicon Valley documentary with Soledad O’Brien.

During the filming of that documentary, he came to understand the real meaning of the term ‘meritocracy’ and recognized that lack of access in the technology space was creating a permanent underclass in communities of color. That experience literally changed the course of his life.

Hajj is founder of Brand Camp University, an educational platform that is preparing people for the future of work. In 2017 he launched Rebrand Cities a global civic design partnership with WordPress.com with the audacious goal to get 10,000 businesses online and eradicate the digital divide.

Brand Camp Summit: Rebrand [Cities. People. Culture. + Tech.]

The Brand Camp Summit is a gathering of thought leaders, technologists, and creatives around a discussion on branding, entrepreneurial thinking, and eradicating the digital divide. Our mission is to prepare people, cities and small businesses for the future of work in the new economy. The 2019 theme is Rebrand [Cities, People, Culture + Tech].
