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

Last week, Huckletree shared a short interview with me on their blog as part of their Braver Together series. As an ambassador of Huckletree, I’ve been very impressed with how a company that rents out commercial real estate and is feeling the pinch, has focused on community first and has been so responsive in continuing to serve their community of entrepreneurs online.
Just yesterday, I was overwhelmed to learn that my Webinar this Thursday has SOLD OUT (all 150 tickets). I’ve released 10 more tickets for my newsletter subscribers so feel free to sign up here.
If you can’t make the Webinar this Thursday, you may be interested in tuning in tonight at 6pm on Instagram Live for a Q&A hosted by Money Medics interviewing me alongside Erica Wolfe-Murray.
Have a productive week.
