About the Founder

About the Founder

Artea, a Charlotte native raised in West Charlotte, understands the challenges of forging a career path without traditional higher education. After leaving college to support her family, she found herself navigating the workforce's competitive landscape. Despite facing barriers, Artea reinvented herself through local programs, gaining a competitive edge in a rapidly evolving job market and eventually breaking into tech.

Throughout her journey, Artea noticed a common struggle among her peers in the tech industry. Many of them, both from traditional and non-traditional educational backgrounds, were constantly striving to keep up with emerging technologies. Some had brilliant ideas for utilizing these technologies but lacked the resources or know-how to bring them to life. Others struggled to find the time and space to experiment with new tech tools.

She also recognized the need for inclusive spaces for diverse technical professionals to be their authentic selves.

Motivated by these observations, Artea founded TechTrapClt to address these gaps. Rooted in her own experiences and insights, TechTrapClt serves as a collaborative space where individuals from diverse educational backgrounds can come together to explore and experiment with emerging technologies. The goal is to bridge the gap between traditional and non-traditional tech professionals, fostering collaboration, innovation, and inclusivity within the Charlotte tech community.
