Andy Ayim on Minorities in Tech

January 21 · Issue #133 · View online
Your weekly newsletter on minorities in tech, venture and entrepreneurship 💫 http://andyayim.com

Sent a tweet last week with the following message:
Receiving a lot of messages (emails, whatsapp etc.) from students and founders asking for advice. Would it be easily if I ran an event every 2 months intimate for 5-10 people to have a Q&A and conversation together? rather than coffee catch ups which I don’t have the capacity for.
Due to the overwhelming response I released tickets for a private event for no more than 10 attendees (AMA for free).

Sadly it sold out but if it goes well I will run it again next month and share it with you all on my newsletter first!
