Cohort 1 | 04.15.23
Our inaugural in-person class took place in Washington, DC, and was attended by 21 entrepreneurs who created four digital products each leveraging design thinking and artificial intelligence. This cohort entered class with high energy and a desire to learn. We had guests from North Carolina, Atlanta, Chicago and Detroit. What made this cohort different was their unique ability to make avatars which looked exactly like them. They were and are superstars.
Cohort 2 | 04.18.23
Our inaugural virtual class took place online, and was attended by 51 entrepreneurs who created four digital products each leveraging design thinking and artificial intelligence. This cohort was our first virtual experience and they arrive active, outspoken and prepared. This cohort was very interactive during the chat, and kept pace with the accelerated lesson. Their e-commerce stor products were stand-out material and very promising.
Cohort 3 | 04.22.23

This cohort contained fast learners which a voracious appetite to build virtually. Class was attended by 50 adult learnings who created four digital products each during class using design thinking and generative artificial intelligence.
Cohort 5 | 05.02.23
The Cheer Squad
Our fifth Hustle-GPT class was very lively, often affirming their cohort mates vigorously throughout the class experience. In one critical moment, an older cohort member wanted to quit because they couldn't immediately understand AI, but the cohort sent positive cheers via chat resulting in a 100% graduation rate. Class was attended by 60 adult learners who created four digital products each during class using design thinking processes, image generation and generative artificial intelligence.
Cohort 6 | 05.04.23

Our sixth Hustle-GPT class was determined, driven and prepared. This class arrived ready to execute on minute one and required very little assistance allowing the teacher to introduce four side hustles instead of three. Class was attended by 60 adult learners who created four digital products each during class using design thinking processes, image generation and generative artificial intelligence.
Cohort 7 | 05.06.23
Toni's Talented Twenty
Our seventh Hustle-GPT class our inaugural class which instructed inspiring authors to write and illustrate their book using Chat GPT and Midjourney. This class arrived on-time! The first class to arrive on time and ready to start in-person before 9:00AM. This class was focused and determined, mastering image generation skills within hours and developing creative characters for their book which matched their well-produced stories by the end of class. Twenty-one (21) aspiring authors graduated from the class.
Cohort 8 | 05.16.23
Our 8th Hustle-GPT class was resilient. During class, the professor experienced a severe thunderstorm and class paused for minutes. Over 70 participants remained online, and picked up the lesson successfull learning to use four "artificial intelligence" tools successfully to create their own digital products. Congrats Cohort 8!
Cohort 9 | 05.18.23
The Dream Team
Our 9th Hustle-GPT class were a classroom of 70+ high performing entrepreneurs. Their class was so effective, we were able to introduce five techniquest for designing digital products. This was an inaugural moment and a standard set for future cohorts. The class MVP was Ms. Cheryl who pushed the class forward by uploading her finished products "first" and "real time." Congrats Cohort #8!
Cohort 10 | 05.20.23
The Money Team
Our 10th Hustle-GPT class were a classroom of 30 entrepreneurs who traveled from Atlanta, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, St. Louis and Miami to join the class. Together we co-created five digital products and were so effective that the class even learned how to design consistent character images (at an intermediate level). This was our largest in-person class and it was marked by a classroom of 29 women, 1 man. We value all people in our class but we were especially excited to serve Black women on this day. The classroom MVP was Tiffiny Johnson and Shanita Edwards. Congrats Cohort #10
Cohort 11 | 05.23.23
Slow, Steady and Safe
Our 11th Hustle-GPT class was a classroom of 70 entrepreneurs joined us virtually from over 15 states, London and Australia! This class was extremely active and the chat was very effective at creating their digital products. For that reason, they were able to create four side hustles instead of the three promised with their admission. Standout designs included their ceramic mug designs and several avatars generated in the images of Black men who were designed with realistic features. We are very proud of this cohort who demonstrated mastery of AI.
Cohort #12 - Hustlers | 05.25.23
The "Turn Up" Tribe
We absolutely loved the 12th Hustle-GPT Class which was a classroom of 70 entrepreneurs joining us virtually from over 12 states, Canada and London! This class was hilarious. The wit, the humor and good-humored jokes kept the spirits high as we moved efficiently in this accelerated course. The class remained positive and was very active in the chat sharing their digital products with one another and affirming their cohort mates creations. This class felt like family and each cohort member successfully developed four products during the class. We are proud. The wo classroom MVPs were Zena and Tamykia. Congrats Cohort #12
