Meet Lourde (Chasity) Wright of WrighTek Solutions (Legacy/Flagship Company) and Infiltron Software Suite (Startup) headquartered in Warner Robins, Ga and will soon have a satellite office in downtown Atlanta with KITT.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chasity Wright.

Chasity, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I literally fell into Aerospace and technology. I enlisted in the USAF in 2002 where I was slated to be a telephone helper climbing poles etc. I hurt my knee really bad in the warrior course and couldn’t complete my fear of heights test. Due to my high scores instead of sending me home, the USAF gave me a new job – Satellite Communications, Space Systems, Ballistics, Telemetry, Missiles = Aerospace Engineering lol. Between my Junior and Senior year at Clark Atlanta University, I completed basic training, tech school, and came back with the confidence I needed to know that I was intelligent, smart, and very capable of success. Chasity is recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine as a 2018 TCX Fellow, a 2020 Ada Lovelace Nominee, and a member of the inaugural class for the 2020 Google For Startups Atlanta Founders Academy and the 2020 NASDAQ Mentorship Circle for Black Founders & Entrepreneurs.

We can start there…

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have been some ups and downs as expected. Tech generally is a safe bet and that’s all relative to your network, capabilities, and ability to deliver exceptional service. I experienced the most downs in the beginning starting with being fired from my corporate gig. My part time NBA position with the Atlanta Hawks along with picking up contracts with the Darden Group and NCR supported me during that time….I was hustling hustling lol.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with WrighTek Solutions (Legacy/Flagship Company) and Infiltron Software Suite (Startup) – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
WrighTek- Proudest that I have been able to employ students to give them real life experience to go with what they learn in theory, veterans, and previously incarcerated people, who in most cases didn’t have any skills in tech.

Infiltron – Infiltron’s solution empowers everyone to proactively secure their data and devices in real-time beyond the edge. We’re the smart device consumers FBI and businesses too!

The proudest aspect of Infiltron is our social responsibility function of mitigating issues for the African Diaspora and women when it comes to biometric technology. Recently, facial recognition came into the world’s view about these very issues. Infiltron is the only company coming in the door solving these issues, not IBM not even Amazon. With us doing this we can make sure law enforcement agencies, for example, don’t use technology such as facial recognition to evoke racial profiling, wrongful arrest, and misidentification of these demographics.

What set us apart is that in the government contracting space its rare to find a black, woman, veteran owned technology company – it’s almost unheard of. The culture we have at both companies allows all to be who they are, be challenged, pursue projects with passion, and get paid what they are worth, which is something that corporate America doesn’t do very well.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Currently developing wearables for the Aerospace industry, so I am excited about that. WrighTek will head to Africa in spring of 2021 given the pandemic is under control for us to travel. We are giving tech focused workshops in different communities across the continent through the Mandela Fellowship program established by Barack Obama in 2015, shout out to my school CAU for that connection. I am huge on philanthropy, so we will also build water wells and give out supplies to several villages in honor of my late grandmother under our non-profit, The Mabel Talton Jackson Foundation. (She was fascinated with Africa and believed we were Nigerian royalty.)

Definitely excited about what’s to come with KITT, a FUBU co-development space in downtown ATL. Where I and 6 other co-founders will have our company offices, hot desk for our members and visitors needing to get work done, provide courses, hold conferences, rent the space out for events, and have labs for R&D and our own projects.

What were you like as a child?
I was curious about gadgets, had a paper route via my dad in middle school, cultural history and religions, loved and played sports in college and now adulthood, and I am remarkably close to my family.
