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

This week I have made a conscious effort to highlight events and stories relevant to Black History Month (BHM). Jamii have created a great magazine highlight Black British History which I purchased last week (buy here).
New website and ebook launched: https://andyayim.com. Any feedback, please share and enjoy my book for Breaking into New Careers in Tech.
On Jury Service this week but looking forward to seeing some friendly faces at the Downing Street BHM celebrations.
PS. Currently recording a week-long series on IGTV on Wealth Creation that you can watch here: https://www.instagram.com/andyshvc/
