Your weekly newsletter on minorities in tech, venture and entrepreneurship 💫

Morning all,
Excited to share that I have launched a pilot for my Angel Investing School (AIS), an in-person 5 week micro-school for professionals interested in learning how to get started with investing in startups with as little as £5,000. More details below.
As I prepare for a week away with a client in Zurich this week, I’ve left you with a larger than usual newsletter with a few unique insights on China (Influencer Marketing and WeChat), enjoy!
Thanks again for all those forwarding this newsletter to friends and replying and telling me what you found useful. See some of you at AIS this April!

Happy new year! Back at it with the tweet storms. Today's thoughts on TAM & go-to-market:

1)IMHO, investors pay a lot of attn to TAM (total addressable market). Founders, some attn to TAM. But most ppl pay TOO LITTLE attn to go-to-market / market pull - what I care about most
