Aireka Harvell, Founder and CEO of Nodat, shared the story behind her title with us on Sunday, September 20th, 2020

Aireka is an usher for Black and Latinx women entrepreneurs in the Nashville area. Aireka founded Nodat in 2017 a startup designed to help small and medium businesses effectively compete for customer loyalty using new and innovative loyalty options that increases revenue and generate repeat loyal local customers. Aireka and her team aspire to disrupt the local marketing and advertising industry by changing the way small and medium businesses and customers engage.

Aireka Harvell has been through some major life challenges-domestic abuse, cancer and an experience that introduced her to negative thoughts about herself. In spite of all that, what changed her thinking was looking back at the little 9 year old girl she was with dreams of becoming a “successful business woman.” Today she’s done just that.
