Chaymeriyia Moncrief had, at the age of 12, already started pursuing her entrepreneurial dream.
The Montgomery resident started off as a designer under her own branding agency which eventually turned into a business by age 16.
Now at 24, Moncrief has stepped into the world of technology – a move that was fueled by a bad experience she had with a cell phone company.
“You go in and they say your phone bill is going to be $98, but you are getting a $150 or $200 bill. I think the final straw for me was a $235 bill, and that is when I said I want my own company,” she told WSFA.
That gave birth to Tesix Wireless, a telecommunications company that announced its launching in summer 2018.
“The name [Tesix Wireless] comes from two things: Technology and sixteen because sixteen is when I started my entrepreneurship journey. The name has a personal meaning to me,” said Moncrief.
