Just in time for your Saturday morning quiet time or clean the house routine, take a listen to #techentrepreneur veteran @sheffierobinson of @toucodirect (founder & CEO), @bantuniumlabs (founder & mentor), @founding #Atlanta chapter (managing director) & @thefarmatl (lead mentor).
In this spirited #podcast episode Charlene speaks with Sheffie about how #startups can easily create your MVP, minimum viable product, teaching the lean startup method and the value of being a self-taught developer. We also take a deep dive into the shortcomings of supposed diversity and inclusion in the technology space.
Sheffie speaks candidly on her thoughts about the state of the #blacktech ecosystem making an impassioned plea for all parties to connect more intentionally, more often and to do more work directly with small minority startups instead of choosing the Google types or other big name silicon valley companies.
The interesting admission from Sheffie is her wish to have failed far more than she did early on by taking far more calculated risks in spite of her fears of starting as a #womenintech, an industry dominated by men.
In the podcast Sheffie gives props to tech titans @urbangkz, @_theplugdaily, @blavity, the Atlanta and broader black tech ecosystem, @techsofcolor, @goodienation, @digundiv @bantuniumlabs and @ascend2020atl
