Being Black and gay, Marc Coleman grew frustrated by the glass ceiling in corporate America so he created his own space where the only limitations were his own drive for success. He formed Tactile Design Group, a software development firm that specializes in cloud-based application development, data collection and visualization, cyber security, and content management. His mantra – “designed to give a damn” – represents his company’s ethos to create products that improve the lives of all.
