Angelic Williams

Angelic is an entrepreneur, startup ecosystem builder and changemaker. She is the Founder and CEO of MyUmbrella: an online platform that serves as a creative outlet for LGBTQ+ community members. Unlike other platforms, MyUmbrella invites community members who want to share their stories the opportunity to do so by joining our Writers Cohort. Their published work reminds us all that we’re not alone as we think we are.

Additionally, she is the Senior Program manager at StartOut, a national nonprofit that supports the LGBTQ+ entrepreneurial community providing the resources entrepreneurs need to succeed, promoting the successes of our community, and researching the economic impacts of LGBTQ+ discrimination.

She was the founding lead of the Black Women Talk Tech San Francisco Chapter and was selected to exhibit at the Forbes Under 30 conference in 2018. Before venturing into tech, she was an architectural design for various civic buildings and the lead developer manager for affordable and workforce housing projects in the Bay Area and New York City.

Angelic holds a Bachelor of Architecture from California College of the Arts and a Master of Real Estate Development from Columbia University.
