Had the pleasure last week of joining The Governments Digital, Culture, Media & Sports team alongside One Tech to host female-led startups from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa in London with a fun event at the end of the day in The House of Commons.
Over the weekend I enjoyed the Chinese New Year celebrations (Year of the Rat). It was great to catch up with a few of you at the Future VC event at Balderton Ventures too.
Released a new blog post on Why I am starting a Micro School as well as an event I am hosting in February, which is basically a free evening Q&A with me where I talk about customer discovery and self-awareness (below).
Have a productive week.
