Andy Ayim on Minorities in Tech

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

Last week, I launched The AIS Dictionary, which shares over 80 common startup and investing terms in tech. From Cap Tables to MVPs, we share simple definitions with examples.
I’m proud of how small and simple things can be so helpful. We sometimes forget that in the tech ecosystem we operate in a small bubble where WE understand all these terms but the majority of the world doesn’t. My goal is to make startups and investing a lot more accessible.
Have a productive week!

The Angel Investing School released the AIS Dictionary.
