BETA and Matchstick Ventures both recently made public, measurable pledges to support Black founders. During this sessions we'll discuss how we decided on these actions, how we're doing so far and how you and your organization can follow suit.
BETA's & Matchstick's Commitment to Diversity
I am passionate about helping the consumer, motivating other entrepreneurs and building relationships. I believe every person I meet can teach me something and I love to learn. Jumping head-first into the tech industry has brought successes and many failures. My failures have taught me the most and I continue to grow from each lesson. I am passionate about giving back to others & helping them through their journey as I was supported through mine.
