More of us represented (Part 2)

In Silicon Alley, I’ve attended many business conferences and events. Many of these events used to lack diversity but are slowly seeing a growing number of diverse audience members and people on stage. Back in 2010, I attended several marketing conferences and met a handful of African American and Hispanic tech enthusiasts/entrepreneurs. I was invigorated and excited to hear their stories and perspectives.

Recently, I have been following Chamillionaire (Platinum & grammy award winning recording artist. EIR @ Upfront Ventures. Startup angel investor. Knowledge seeker. Boss.) On the many videos posted on YouTube, he has shared a lot of good insights and wisdom on early stage startups, diversity in the tech space, getting more minorities interested in tech and sharing his experiences/information with others.
