#Roommates get into this! During Clark Atlanta University’s 33rd commencement ceremony, Slutty Vegan founder Pinky Cole announced plans to give every graduate a new LLC!
Yup, the Clark Atlanta University Alumna announced that she has partnered with Varo Bank to provide the university’s 824 graduates with a limited liability corporation, or LLC.
“Every single graduate in this audience will leave this stadium as a business owner,” Pinky stated. The CEO and Clark Atlanta Alumna delivered a powerful speech to the graduating class of 2022. She detailed her own journey to entrepreneurship and encouraged others to follow in her footsteps.
“I want you to fail so hard you become an expert in failure and you get a PhD in failology,” she said. “I want you to fail because failing is not failing at all. It is finding aspiration in the losses.”
“Pinky is a loyal and dedicated ambassador for CAU. Making it known that she is a proud graduate at every opportunity,” said CAU President George T. French Jr. “She is a consistent financial supporter and has helped many students continue their matriculation through graduation.” Pinky graduated from Clark Atlanta in 2009, and was even crowned Miss Clark Atlanta in 2008.
The entrepreneur started selling vegan burgers on Instagram in July 2018 before quickly moving on to a food truck. Slutty Vegan has opened multiple locations since opening their West End restaurant in October 2018. The popular, plant-based burger joint, has four metro Atlanta locations and one in Athens. There are plans to open locations in Columbus; Brooklyn, New York; and Birmingham, Alabama.
