MAXX Potential's Kim Mahan Named Among Innovators Changing The South

Kim Mahan’s Twitter bio reads, “I invest in people and make lots of things, including mistakes.” At MAXX Potential, a technology trade school of sorts, Mahan makes room for happy accidents, and she makes them profitable too. Virginia-based MAXX Potential takes tech job candidates and gives them more than training; it also gives them jobs so students can make money while they’re learning. As a self-taught programmer and mother of three, Mahan knows it’s important to make a living while learning new skills, and she’s made a way for her students to do just that.


Innovators Changing the South
