Our Mission

We are empowering financial liberation for young people of color who, through employment in the film and live event industry, are building skills that nurture personal growth. We create and are hired to create projects that provide diverse talent with the tools necessary to bring their artistic vision to fruition.

We live by excellence by seeking to be the greatest in everything we do.  We follow our passion wholeheartedly because we love what we do.  We stand firmly for what we believe in, and our passion gives us a sense of purpose.  We are driven by positivity and are self-motivated thinkers.  We have clearly defined goals and will stop at nothing to achieve them.  In our desire to deliver events and films of quality, we are all about results, not excuses!

Our Story

In July of 2009, two old high school friends got together over dinner to "catch up" on the life they had been leading as the years apart never really tore them apart. They were best friends in high school, and that friendship never died. After "catching up" for three hours, one of the friends, Joy, asked the other, Nerissa, "What do you want to do in life?"  Nerissa answered, "give people jobs and have fun doing it!"That Chile Got Talent was born at that table that night with Nerissa and Joy sitting there until the restaurant closed, figuring out what the company would be and, better yet, what it would become. Two women who had nothing but time to lose made a choice to follow their dreams and never let them go.  


Over the next five years, Joy and Nerissa managed and arranged more than 100 events throughout the Boston and South Shore area. In 2011 Nerissa decided to return to school and get her MFA in Film Production from Emerson College. Joy decided to grow her family and had another child. All while still hosting events and setting a name for themselves in the community. Nerissa produced films, and Joy provided the necessary Graphics to make the projects come alive. In the spring of 2014, Joy stepped down from TCGT, but Nerissa still held on and is still the organization's CEO today.


Since Nerissa's graduation in May of 2015, she has taken TCGT Entertainment to the next level by building an infrastructure of talented women who bring their A-game to the table for every event, film, or conference. The management never stops, and the goal to grant jobs to those society seems to overlook has never died. We employ a minimum of 10 people per live event. Our roster of independent contractors continues to grow. We are proud to provide an outlet for our veterans and mothers who need mothers' hours.  


TCGT Entertainment has become a standard in the City of Boston, and we aim to live up to it daily!
