Brite Energy Innovators Welcomes Hankinson to Staff

WARREN, Ohio – Brite Energy Innovators this week announced the hiring of Autumn Hankinson to serve as community manager. Her focus will be on supporting and connecting the incubator’s startups and network members.

Hankinson is a graduate of The University of Kentucky with a degree in communications. She recently relocated to Columbus. Before joining Brite, she spent six years in Austin, Texas, working with entrepreneurs in various capacities and providing support to startups.

Hankinson first learned of Brite while trying to get plugged into her new Ohio ecosystem. She was energized by the incubator’s mission, her love for clean energy and the Midwest/Appalachian region.

“We are thrilled to have Autumn join our team,” says Jing Lyon, entrepreneur programs director at Brite. “Her extensive experience in supporting entrepreneurs, combined with her passion for community building and clean energy, makes her a valuable asset to our organization. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact she will make on our community and the growth opportunities she will unlock for our members.”
