To spur its economic recovery in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the City of Akron has launched the Akronite app. Akronite is a comprehensive city-centered software platform to increase civic and community engagement, raise up female- and minority-owned businesses, and help residents connect with local retailers.

We interviewed two members of the Colu team (Michael Mazur and Calvin Saunders) while they were in town to celebrate the Akronite app.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/akroncommunityvoice/message
