Andy is spearheading efforts to make European investing more diverse and inclusive by raising awareness of underrepresentation, and providing financial, strategic, and networking support to Black Founders.
He’s done some amazing work to push forward the DE&I agenda in the UK Tech scene, which included writing the Black Report in 2020, to examine the landscape facing black Startup Founders in the UK.
In this episode, Andy delves deeper into his entrepreneurial journey to date, including:
- How vanity won’t help your business, but honesty will.
- How the word “and” can sound the death knell for a Startup, with too many add-ons overshadowing the real point of interest.
- And why Andy looks for obsession in Founders – the willingness to run through walls to get the end result.
