In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Akin Sawyerr, Managing Director of Feleman Limited, a venture advisory firm focused on leveraging Blockchain technology to create value in underserved communities. Akin also serves in a Strategy & Operations leadership role with Barnbridge, a derivatives protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. Previously, Akin served as the Strategy and Africa Lead for Decred. Before that spent fifteen years in management consulting and Fortune 500 corps. He led strategic and organization transformation projects at Booz Allen Hamilton and Accenture and held leadership positions with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. And to add to this impressive list of credentials, Akin began his career at the International Monetary Fund in the Technology and General Services Group where he conducted economic research and data analysis in support of IMF country strategies across Africa, Asia and Europe. We discussed the current state of the crypto ecosystem, the future money and work in the US and abroad on the continent of Africa and where we go from here. Specifically, we talk about Nigeria as a case study for how distrust in a political and financial system can lead to a shift where citizens opt-out to adopt other self-custody value transfer options. For example, esusus (informal lending groups) are a popular means to create and protect wealth based on familial relationships or affinity groups, create a community of trust and honor that is “off the books”  In the case of esusus, they are not digitized. They are IRL cultural norms. But if they were digitized … perhaps they’d look A LOT like blockchain communities. We explore what it would look like to digitize cooperative economics for the unbanked, underbanked and those who want an alternative hedge against government-issued money (aka fiat).SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY There’s a more cost effective and time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition to create opportunity and generational wealth in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy.

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I speak with Sherrell Dorsey, a data journalist, social entrepreneur, and the founder and CEO of The Plug, a distinctive, Black tech news and insights platform covering Black innovators in tech, venture capital, future of work policy, and more. Sherrell has scaled her new media startup to thousands of subscribers, hundreds of paid members and she’s raised over $500,000 in equity-free capital. Amazing.Sherrell shares her poignant personal journey, how she’s been doing in the midst of the devastating impacts of the pandemic, and her phenomenal professional ascension … from working for designers and content marketing firms at the intersection of commerce and social media to finding her true shine in tech journalism. She’s contributed to Fast Company, The Root, Next City, and many others. And recently, she launched a season one of The Clark Street Project, A narrative episodic podcast that details the evolution of Black business news and entrepreneurship coverage and the journalists who’ve led the charge. One of the most empowering moments to listen out for is when Sherrell reminds us that the pandemic hasn’t changed the mission for Black innovators and entrepreneurs. And she offers some strategies for not only surviving but thriving as we prepare for the fourth industrial revolution and future of work in the tech world. If you’re listening to this on the release date, November 3rd, 2020, then I hope you’ve already voted, are on your way, or are in line and listening to pass the time. Get. Out. And. Vote. Our collective future depends on our individual participation in democracy.

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Leigh Cuen is a tech reporter covering blockchain technology for publications such as Coindesk, Newsweek Japan, International Business Times and Racked. Her work has also been published by Teen Vogue, Al Jazeera English, The Jerusalem Post, Mic, and Salon.  I invited Leigh on to talk about some of the latest topics and trends she is covering in the blockchain and crypto spaces and we spent a lot of time exploring the boom of thirst traps (aka sexy selfies) and feminist GIFs because they are selling like hotcakes on non-fungible token (NFT) markets, but-of course-not everyone is thrilled about this trend. Leigh was challenged by the topic at first but through her reporting has come to appreciate the self-actualizing creative and final power born out of this unique way of levering NFTs.

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Erika Jefferson, the president and founder of black women in science and engineering BWISE, an organization focused on bridging the leadership gap for black women in STEM. She received her MBA from Georgia Tech and her BS in chemical engineering from Louisiana State University. She has worked for top companies such as Amoco, BP, Chevron and Praxair in a myriad of leadership and executive roles ranging from sales/business development to supply chain in operation six excellence. Since creating BWISE, Erika grown the organization to over 1,200 members and six chapters (Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, DC, Houston and San Diego) around the country. We talk about the five key areas that women must focus on to enter and excel within STEM fields. And we address challenges and opportunities in the future of work for black women and other underestimated groups because sometimes being underestimated is our greatest superpower, as Arlan Hamilton says.SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY There’s a more cost effective and time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition to create opportunity and generational wealth in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy.

In this episode, MakerDAO general counsel Brian Avello and I explore the secrets to success for future lawyers and current lawyers interested in pivoting to represent clients involved in blockchain, cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance (or “defi”). This is also an important episode for anyone who wants to better understand the legal landscape in the crypto space. Brian explains what decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and smart contracts are and addresses the cefi vs. defi distinction. And he also shares his take on some of the most pressing legal issues in defi and crypto today and in the future, including regulation by a number of regulatory bodies like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Commodity Futures Trade Commission (CFTC), Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and the Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

In this episode, I take a detour from regularly scheduled guest interviews to share with you an excerpt from my Advantage Evans Academy course, From Cash to Crypto. Since launching this three-week online small group coaching intensive, I have received lots of fantastic questions about the digital cash economy, Bitcoin, blockchain and what it all means. I've also heard the misinformation and disinformation about cryptocurrency. Spoiler alert: it ISN'T all about the dark web or criminals.If you believe cryptocurrency is too complicated, too confusing and WAY too risky, this episode and my course are for you. Because just three years ago, I thought the same way. But I’ve worked hard to make it all make sense so you don’t have to.I’ve done the heavy lifting through the jargon and fringy buzz words to demystify and clarify how to participate fully in a supportive, inclusive environment.

In this episode, I welcome Jumoke Dada. Jumoke is a forward-thinking individual with a proven track record for solving problems and supporting women and girls in tech and in life. Her professional career spans 15+ years and includes working in corporate information technology as an application developer, business/systems analyst, and project manager even though wasn’t drawn to STEM until college.  In addition to being a trained technologist, she has a knack for strategic marketing and a deep and abiding interest in entrepreneurship best expressed through her company, Signature RED, which provides technology and strategy consulting services. She also runs Project ALOE, a beauty drive and send-off event for college-bound girls under the 501(c)3 arm of her company, Signature RED Cares 501(c)3. And she hosts one of the best tech conferences in the world for women of color. In sum,  She and her work are some kind of wonderful.There are many gems and lessons in this episode about thriving in the tech space and in life. One of the most important words of wisdom is that you can be multi-faceted or a “late bloomer” in tech and still be right on time. Jumoke found a way to combine tech, marketing, event planning and philanthropy to create opportunities for herself and other women to connect, galvanize, and elevate together.SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY There’s a more cost effective and time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition to create opportunity and generational wealth in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy.

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I speak with Professor Kelly Knight. Professor Knight is an assistant professor with the George Mason University Forensic Science Program and also a STEM Accelerator. As a STEM Accelerator, she guides and mentors undergraduate students in the Forensic Science Program and coordinates K-12 STEM outreach including the Females of Color and those Underrepresented in STEM summer programs for middle and high school girls. She has such an interesting background and really impressive expertise in the challenging, dynamic field of forensic science, which encompasses many fields and disciplines related to the application of science to the law.We talk about what forensic science IS (and isn’t). She dispels myths about crime science investigations, especially given the popularity of CSI shows, the pain points and career opportunities for black women in STEM and in academia and the future of CSI and how technology is improving capabilities so that students of today, especially black and brown women and girls, can prepare for the careers of the future.

And it has been an incredible way to connect with fantastic listeners like YOU and with so many amazing new and notable experts in law, business, and technology. This is a special episode from a conversation I had with my business partner and one of my dearest friends, Shontavia Johnson.

In this episode, I speak with library-of-the-future software veteran Tony Zanders who is also founder and CEO of SkillType, a company and product Tony created to help people to increase their industry-relevant skills and credentials and also to help libraries and information professionals with job skill analysis and development. The ultimate goal is to “future-proof” the information industry and remove the unnecessary dividing line between education, upskilling and work. Skilltype is reimaginging professional development and it’s not a moment too soon. Access to information and the ability to upskill and reskill virtually is critically important. The pandemic has definitely shined a light on this reality. Employers are now returning to training their workforce.  So Tony has positioned Skilltype to leverage that need in order to empower the information professionals industry on both sides of the education vs work divide. Skilltype is in Beta right now. So catch this amazing project on the way up!

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I speak with Cleve Mesidor, founder of LOGOS, the first decentralized social platform exclusively for activists. Logos leverages blockchain technology to deliver a decentralized, secure, protected network - ensuring trolls and their fake profiles are barred and provocative works are not censored. This unique, peer to peer experience seeks to empower disruptors to reach contemporaries globally and make meaningful connections to support positive social evolution and equality. Previously, Cleve served as an Obama Presidential Appointee, working as Director of Public Affairs for the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration, where she was charged with promoting White House economic programs and national public-private partnerships to advance innovation and entrepreneurship.In this episode, we have an authentic and empowering conversation about race, crypto, and financial inclusion. We explore the importance of education in black and brown communities by dramatically reducing barriers to entry and participation. And we also explore the importance of the lessons of freedom from Juneteenth as context for the broader conversation of economic empowerment. I know you’ll learn a lot. And I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we enjoyed having it.**EPISODE SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY** There’s a more cost effective, time-efficient way to reach your leading-edge learning and earning goals, to put you ahead of the stiff competition in this fast-paced, tech-driven economy.The fact is, traditional education costs too much, takes too long, and offers no guarantees of a job upon graduation.
