#29 Creative Intelligence: Providing the mentorship that sparks entrepreneurship
In this episode, James speaks to Carolyn Rodz, co-founder and CEO of Hello Alice. Backed by Serena Williams and Melinda Gates, the free data-driven platform connects individuals with the resources to start and grow a business. Working closely with community, government and private sector partners such as Ebay, Backstage Capital, Mastercard and Salesforce, the platform uses machine-learning technology to match businesses owners to personalized opportunities.
In this conversation, Carolyn describes her personal mission to create a platform which removes the challenges that entrepreneurs face on day one, such as gaining access to capital. She shares some of the tools which people can use to transition from office spaces to remote working, and explains how Hello Alice puts the control back into the hand of business owners by providing the knowledge and mentorship needed to executive decisions.
