I challenge the entrepreneurs of tomorrow to remember that your experience will guide the solutions. Your lived experiences are vital and valuable.

As the world continues to learn how to live in this post-COVID world while coming to grips with our dark racial history, tech will be a critical element to building an equitable future for us all. It isn’t tech that will save us; it will be people who understand the deep challenges ahead of us and who are insistent on shaping it. Technology will only accelerate this much-needed progress.

It isn’t tech that will save us; it will be people

I challenge the entrepreneurs of tomorrow to remember that your experience will guide the solutions. Your lived experiences are vital and valuable. Always be looking to surround yourself with diverse people. Stay steadfast in our shared mission to challenge today’s norms until we see a society that benefits us all. In times of crisis, the innovators rise.

I see tech being even more integrated into our everyday lives. Use it for good, and we will see a reform of healthcare, a shift in political leadership and solutions for small businesses that have been devastated. We are already seeing new ways to bring education to communities that haven’t been able to access vital programs and a renewed focus on making food accessible. There is much we can do with the right people powered by tech.
