Recently, the next film in Invesco QQQs' "Investing in Greater Possibilities Together" content series debuted on CNN during Anderson Cooper 360.
Invesco QQQ has partnered with CNN to tell documentary-style stories of early-stage entrepreneurs and innovators in original films. In the latest episode Trey Brown, 13-year-old entrepreneur and CEO of fashion brand SPERGO, is paired up with Ernie Talbert, director of global brand marketing at Under Armour. Talbert's mentorship provides the aspiring fashion mogul with indispensable lessons for moving his Philadelphia-based company from a homegrown name into an international brand. Brown is well aware that the path to success won't be easy, but thanks to mentors like Talbert, he's getting an excellent education in how to bring SPERGO to the next level and beyond. "To become a global brand, you gotta work hard," says Brown. "And I'm gonna work hard to get there. That's what big brands do. I'm ready to be a big brand."
In addition to the full 2:30 minute film that appeared during AC 360, a :30 second version and a :60 version focusing specifically on his tour of Howard University aired online, in social and on CNN TV.
Invesco QQQs' underlying index, the Nasdaq-100, invests in some of the most innovative companies in the world, such as Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Tesla and Google. These companies, once small entrepreneurial start-ups, have reimagined and redefined themselves and their sectors through innovation. While the companies within Invesco QQQ are big names making a big impact, we celebrate innovation at every level because we believe that the journey to becoming a QQQ company truly can begin anywhere.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
