A Black and White Perspective on Entrepreneurship

Recording: A Black and White Perspective on Entrepreneurship, Mar 11, 2019


Jason Ford


Ikechi Nwabuisi


In this interview-style session, Ikechi Nwabuisi, an entrepreneur and son of Nigerian immigrants, will interview Jason Ford, a founder who sold his business in 2014 to Bazaarvoice. Ikechi and Jason have been friends for a while, and have found much common ground in their lives and entrepreneurial experiences. But they are also acutely aware of how the world views them differently—and how that shapes the level of access and resources available to them.
It can be hard to get an insider perspective on entrepreneurship. Particularly for those that are not white men who share demographics with a majority of VCs and well-funded startup founders. Jason brings an open and honest perspective, and Ikechi will not pull any punches, which promises an educational and interesting discussion.
