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.
Episode details

Our guest chat is with Chika Umeadi, founding partner of Tiphub (https://tiphub.vc/), a Nigerian American that is helping African startups navigate the US landscape and help bridge the gap between what African startups need as well as the expectations of the US Startup ecosystem. We delve deep into what African American as well as POC founders experience building companies in the USA. This leads us to the protests about racial injustice as result of George Floyd and why this time it's impactful and will lead us to real change. Need to get in touch with Chika about investments?
