Published June 8, 2022

As part of our ‘Meet Our Founders’ series today, we introduce Quentin DeBerry, Founder of BLKResumes based in Charlotte, NC. BLKResumes is an all-in-one underserved talent management platform (UTMP) that uses today’s most effective sourcing strategies to reach the full scope of underserved talent.

Q: What problem are you trying to solve and what influenced you to start your company?

A: Let’s face it – diversity hiring is challenging. Despite the verified advantages of creating a diverse workforce, most organizations stumble to meet their diversity and inclusion objectives. BLKResumes was born out of my career journey and navigating the complex job search process as a Black candidate, Hiring Manager, and Recruiter. We guide organizations on hiring and sourcing Black + Brown talent for professional growth and career equity.

Q: What is the one thing you wish you understood about entrepreneurship before you ever got started?

A: Never listen to the naysayers.

Q: Who has been the biggest influence on your life?

A: God, Lillie & Steve Sellers, Gaines, WSSU and H3 Community
