Your weekly newsletter on minorities in tech, venture and entrepreneurship 💫 http://andyayim.com

Last week, thoroughly enjoyed delivering a keynote for the young people on the Future Startup Now programme, training them in creative disciplines in tech then helping them break into the industry.
Also met several people IRL who kindly shared feedback about how much they enjoy the newsletter (thank you).
Was kindly invited to take part on a BHM (Black History Month) exhibition with PWC which will be launched next month and include holograms (pretty cool).
Finally, my daughter played with her first STEM toy, Cubetto by Primo Toys which she loved.
Attended a Money Jar Meetup in Brixton on getting started with investing in stocks & shares. Very engaging and the next one on property investing promises to be just as good (you can sign up here).
