Felecia Hatcher

Co-Founder

“Everyone is a Genius, you just have to look past your circumstances and get creative!” Is Felecia Hatcher’s message when she speaks to large crowds around the world. For over a decade Hatcher has dedicated her life to empowering people around the world to create their own opportunities and follow their most Epic Dreams. Hatcher has been named one of the Top 10 Superstar Entrepreneurs under 30, 2014 White House Champion of Change for STEM access and diversity, a TEDx Presenter and featured on the Food Network, Inc, Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur, Essence Magazine and Black Enterprise for her work in Branding, Social Media and Entrepreneurship.

As a “C” student in high school Hatcher beat the odds and won over $100,000 in scholarships to attend college by getting creative. Felecia used her experience and knack for personal marketability to start her first business called Urban Excellence as a freshman in college where she built and ran innovative college prep programs for companies like DeVry University, MECA, AMPS Institute, the YMCA, Texas A&M University,TED, and the Urban League.

In 2005 Hatcher brushed off her entrepreneurial bug and spent the next few years traveling around the country spearheading successful experiential marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies like Nintendo, Sony, Wells Fargo, and Microsoft. Hatcher also worked for the NBA as the Front Office Marketing Manager for the Minnesota Timberwolves/Lynx organization and spearheaded their re- branding campaign.

In 2008 Hatcher started a gourmet popsicle and ice cream catering company after she fell flat on her face while attempting to chase an ice cream truck in heels. The company is dedicated to sustainability and innovation donating a portion of each popsicle sell to charity as well as running social enterprise Code Fever dedicated to turning black youth from consumers of technology to creators of technology by providing tech entrepreneurship training, mentorship and funding.

Hatcher has formed many strategic partnerships through her company Feverish Ice Cream serving clients like, Trump, The W Hotel Universal Music, Adidas, Whole Foods, Live Nation, Barcardi, JCrew, Capitol Records, Maker’s Mark, The US Census Bureau, The W Hotel, Playboy, Tom Cruise, and Vitamin Water to promote their new products through her trucks, carts, social media networks and sponsored ice cream give-a-ways.
