Your weekly newsletter on minorities in tech, venture and entrepreneurship ๐Ÿ’ซ

Last week, I enjoyed the intimate conversation I was a part of at o2 Wayra with black and brown founders early in their journey. We shared some honest truths on being lean, how VC money is not the goal and the importance of cultural relevance.
This week looking forward to:
- Facilitating Strategy workshop with Foundervine
- Attending Breaking Barriers: Diversity in PE & VC Forum
- Hosting Office Hours with Arlan Hamilton (founders can apply HEREย less than 10 spaces left)
I will be focusing mostly though on user interviews for my startup (currently in stealth)!

Best thread ever on fundraising by the founder of Mixpanel.
1/ Let's talk about fundraising: In 2009, Y Combinator only gave us $15K, half our YC batch died after demo day, 11 firms told us no, 2 firms wanted to find us a CEO, 1 VC told me, point blank, we would fail, we were a week away from death but luckily raised $500K @ 2M pre.
