Celebrating the success of Black founders

February is Black History Month—a time for us to come together to celebrate and remember the important people and history of the African heritage. Over the next four weeks, we will highlight four Black-led startups and how they use Google Cloud to grow their businesses. Our second feature highlights Zirtue and its founder, Dennis. Specifically, Dennis talks about how the team was able to innovate quickly with easy-to-use Google Cloud tools and services. 

I’m sure many of you have loaned money to your family and friends—and experienced the awkwardness of asking for that money back. While we all want to support our loved ones, we also want to ensure the money is going toward the right causes and that we will get paid back as promised. I founded my startup Zirtue, to provide a simple, easy and non-threatening way to formalize the loan process between friends and family.
