Hajj Flemings is founder of Brand Camp University, an educational platform that is preparing people for the future of work, and Rebrand Detroit, a civic design and brand project a multi-disciplinary collaboration with the residents, community stakeholders, and local government to change cities starting with Detroit.
Hajj was one of eight entrepreneurs selected for the CNN’s Black in America 4: The New Promised Land: Silicon Valley documentary with Soledad O’Brien. He cites the filming of that documentary as a life-changing experience, bringing him to understand the real meaning of the term ‘meritocracy’ and recognized that lack of access in the technology space was creating a permanent underclass in communities of color.
In 2017 he launched Rebrand Cities, a global civic design partnership with WordPress,
dedicated to getting 10,000 businesses online and eradicating the digital divide.
Flemings has worked with clients including Walt Disney, Pitney Bowes and Pfizer. He has also been featured in the Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, Mashable and CNN Tech Money on the subjects of startups, digital technology and branding.
