ADee Technologies LLC

Name: Dr. Adrienne Williams

Location: Ontario, CA 

Type of Business:
Graphene Distribution

What does your business do?
ADee Technologies LLC is a commercialized graphene distributor for companies in Asia and North America.

When and why did you start the biz?
I started the business in July of 2018 because I have been researching graphene for nearly 10 years and am an expert in the field. I have expertise in sales and working with customers in finding the "right" graphene for their company needs by working with large manufacturing companies that commercialize graphene based products.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
It is in my home office.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of running my business is that I am doing it by myself for now. I interface with the manufacturing companies sales office, the clients that need the graphene products for their company's needs, I also handle all of the financial paperwork associated with running the company.

What's the most fun part?
The most fun part is when I get a client with a manufacturing company and they already have clients they are working with. Makes my job easier to distribute their products much faster!

Anything you would have done differently?
I would have hired a CPA from the start but I am learning to do all of this myself. In the near future, as my company expands I will do so.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
I would like to use a grant to make a nice website page for my company to include a picture of myself and the company profile and why I started the company!

What advice do you have for others?
I would say, if you have an idea, and are hesitant to start because you doubt yourself, you are only hurting you! There will be times that your business is not doing as good as you hoped but greatness will come with time, patience and hard work! You have to be consistent!

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I will use Idea Café to highlight my business, gain traction with my company, apply for small business grants and learn from other successful companies on what to do and how to continue to move my company in the right direction.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Doctoral Degree

Prior jobs or business?
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in Materials Science at a University in Southern California and STEM Faculty Advisor. I will also be starting my graphene research at the university as well this year-2019. Prior, I was a materials engineer for the Air Force Research Laboratory for 6 years.

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?
Dajai and Scarlett

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
My mother encouraged me to start my own business because she said I was more knowledgeable than my bosses in the field at the time on what I wanted to do and she knows I can succeed at anything I put my mind to!

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
God, for giving me the strength to start my own company!
