One of the often-cited reasons for why people of color are passed over for startup funding and tech roles is because those who are writing the checks and making hiring decisions are inclined to select people who look like themselves, who have followed similar life and career trajectories.
Daniel Kihanya has a plan for circumventing that bias.
Kihanya, a Seattle-based serial entrepreneur with 25-years experience, has created the Founders Unfound podcast. Twice a month, he shares the stories of up-and-coming founders who are underrepresented in the startup space, with a focus on Black entrepreneurs. Kihanya interviews the founders, helping them tell the compelling stories of their backgrounds and startup experience.
