Tyler Holloway '23 Peake Fellow

Tyler served as Joint Innovation Coordinator after her one-year Peake Fellowship supporting small business upskilling across Cybersecurity, Outreach & Engagement, Community Commerce, and Cloud Operations best practices. She now serves as Peake Fellowship Operations Manager leading Fellows and Community Navigators in their support of small business cybersecure growth across the U.S. critical infrastructure sectors.

Originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia, Tyler’s passion for entrepreneurship goes as far back as she can remember. As a student at Savannah State University, Tyler co-founded TigerCo Marketing, an initiative that took an inventor’s hot sauce to market with local stores. All of the company’s profits contributed to a micro-loan program for other students at Savannah State. The overall TigerCo initiative, which was highlighted on the cover of Founder Magazine, has become a blueprint for rallying community support and joint innovation. As part of her service learning, Tyler also co-created an online marketplace for goods from student entrepreneurs across the campus. Beyond her interest in community commerce, Tyler also served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and received a Coca-Cola United Bottling Company Internship & Scholarship. Tyler is a graduate of Savannah State University where she earned a Bachelors in Business Administration in 2020 and an MBA in 2022. Tyler is currently an evening graduate student in Cyberpsychology at Norfolk State University.
