Morgan's Journey So Far

 

Morgan is an internationally recognized, award-winning entrepreneur and local community leader. She is the founder and CEO of MilkCrate - a mission-driven tech company helping other mission-driven organizations achieve their impact goals. The MilkCrate platform powers the apps for some of the world's leading nonprofits and municipal programs.

 

She regularly travels the country sharing her story as a female tech founder, B Corp leader, and jiu jitsu fighter.

After starting her first socially-minded enterprise at 16, and earning clients such as Anthropologie, Morgan has always sought to discover new ways to tie her passions and skills for helping others. She is eager to help other entrepreneurs, especially underrepresented ones, find their chance to do good through business. As a designer and business leader, she guides her team to help grow impact by leveraging technology, commerce, and philanthropy. 

 

She has presented at Forbes 30 Under 30, was listed by the UN Foundation as one of the "Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs to Watch" in the world, auditioned for Shark Tank, and invited by the Obama Administration to the White House for Clean Energy Plan talks. She has been a World Economic Forum Global Shaper, a Fellow at the Ariane de Rothschild Fellowship, an Environmental Leadership Program Senior Fellow, and won the Rad Girl Product of the Year Award.

With almost a decade in the nonprofit world, Morgan embarked on a journey that led to starting MilkCrate in 2014. When she enrolled in a Masters of Science in Sustainable Design from Jefferson University she unwittingly sent herself headfirst into the tech startup scene when she decided to design an app for her graduate thesis. Looking back, this was the beginning of her company, MilkCrate, a platform that tracks and grows impact for large organizations.

 

 

 

Morgan has been featured extensively on national news outlets like the WHYY, the Philadelphia Business Journal, Boston Metro, Philadelphia Inquirer, NBC10, Forbes, Philadelphia Magazine's Be Well Blog, and others. Morgan is very passionate about helping underrepresented groups in tech like women and minorities and shares her experience as a woman entrepreneur and lessons learned from competing in both business and martial arts.

 

As well as being a fearsome entrepreneur, she is a blue belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor and won her second gold medal thanks to the coaching and training of her team. She lives in Philadelphia with her wonderfully supportive partner and their fluffy cat Chester.
