25-Year Old Founder Launches First Black Woman-Owned Smartphone Brand

Chaymeriyia Moncrief is a tech entrepreneur from Alabama who is the founder and CEO of prepaid wireless carrier, Tesix Wireless™ Network. She turned down a $4.4M takeover offer, raised over $5M, and ended the 2019 year with a $10M valuation. Now, she is taking on an even bigger technology sector: smartphones and electronics.

As a wireless carrier, it is ideal to sell the most popular and latest smartphones under your brand. Wanting to remain a standout Millennial focus carrier, Chaymeriyia was determined to become the first African American woman to launch her own line of smartphones, and eliminate selling other mobile brands.

With a mission to “create to inspire a forward culture,” Chaymeriyia decided to name the electronic brand NSPRE™ (Inspire) Electronics featuring smartphones and other electronics.

After nearly two years of planning, the brand’s first phone, the NSPRE™ NX Pro, is up and running

With more consumer electronics in works, NSPRE™ will announce the release of two more products this fall.
