Troy Carter, Marlon Nicols, James Andrews and moderator Sherri Scott hosted a Keynote Conversation highlighting the current cultural trends as well as what’s to come.  This was the launch of their SMASHD: Culture + Code tour presented by Comcast.


"SMASHD Labs presents Culture & Code Tour. In Atlanta we met with entrepreneurs, creatives and hustlers. Troy Carter and James Andrews were the keynote speakers at A3C Conference. Spent the last part of our time there with Usher's foundation Usher New Look training young students. Thank you to Comcast and Cross Culture Ventures for partnering with us."  - SMASHED  Labs

"(Atlanta) is prime for a huge huge revolution" James Andrews at A3C Conference 



SMASHD Ventures believes that the next wave of innovation will happen in new and emerging markets and urban centers outside of New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.  The history and importance of the A3C community was a natural synergy for Troy Carter and James Andrews, who both came up in the music industry through the emergence of the 90’s Hip Hop business and fundamentally believe that Hip Hop is the greatest example of entrepreneurship and startup innovation in the creative economy. Each panelist will bring their diverse expertise to this Atlanta audience curated by A3C, whose continued efforts to empower, engage and energize the Hip-Hop community make it the perfect starting point for SMASHD Venture’s Culture + Code.
