TCL EP11 - Getting real in the startups industry with Sophy Mwale Onyango
My name is VIJEV and I do a podcast about my geeky brain trying to decipher the real world. I chat with a wide variety of people including my recurring tech enthusiast, Deepu Babu. We discuss our world impacted by technology and delve deep into our thoughts as we uncover influences and inventions that drive our innate human behaviour mixed with our love of retro sci-fi art.
We are getting honest about the startups industry with Sophy Mwale Onyango, founder and CEO of HR Startup, Emploi (https://emploi.co/). We talk about a private club with elites that is not always open to everyone. An industry that forced Sophy to play a game in a different, more conforming character in order to please them who often never saw her perspective in building businesses. A game with unequal players on an uneven platform where she had to accept that it's stacked up against her. It's time to get real and not play in the facade and simply get down to why you started in the first place, to build a business and run the company your customers expect, not what the investors expect.
