So you want to solve big problems? That’s great! Let’s make sure you aren’t creating new ones by ignoring accessibility in the process. This talk is for anyone building a company, working on a product, or investing in a new venture, because – whether you know it yet or not – your audience includes people with disabilities. We'll cover the need-to-know fundamentals of building a company, product, and digital presence that includes people of all abilities. This includes the basics of web accessibility, strategies for optimizing social posts for equitable access, and considerations for growing a company with accessibility in mind.
