Black Lives Matter
First and foremost Placemint.io is a black-owned tech startup based out of Atlanta and the support and backing for all black and minority professionals has always been our primary objective. We’ve seen our fair share of racial injustice and experienced how difficult it can be to navigate an industry that is geared toward keeping us in a perpetual state of struggle. We are here for you and want to make sure you know that we will take care of you.
Placemint is 100% for Black entrepreneurs, consultants, and professionals. We are rebuilding our platform into a freelance marketplace and network with intentions for qualified black professionals to connect, collaborate, and bid on projects with specific needs. In the meantime, we have compiled a collection of resources on our current racial issues to better educate yourself as they pertain to Employment, Human Resources and the Talent Acquisition space.
