I recommend EVERY BUSINESS PERSON FOLLOW THIS COURSE. #CS183B  How To Start A Startup...  the course being offered by Stanford and Ycombinator...  Not every new business is a “startup”. The confusion runs right through all channels. More-so an Ecosystem needs big fish and small fish and managing that delicate balance is complicated. Even moreso in a fast paced and  changing ecosystem where every new business needs a digital strategy it is easy to say one is a “STARTUP”.  There are many factors and from the question even tech people may be a bit confused. 
  
During  #BkstyleCon 2014  we looked at the traditional, luxury and cottage branches of the fashion sector.  I noted that most of the local creatives and fashion entrepreneurs Have ideas and can identify need but this new [startups] way of thinking and working is 'foreign" to them. The Startup is a unique Business genre.  I personally began studying the NY startup scene in 2006 dipping my toes into it in 2012. My passion though is teh local creative sector It became clear that there was a huge divide! I recently began bringing together individuals to  Introducing and exploring new ideas and business models from a local tech ecosytem perspective, this Stanford -YCombinator  open series came just in time.  An easy compilation  of all sessions and notes on the series. Is available at https://plus.google.com/116842197693367326602/posts/hoewtoCQV6X 
 

I decided to strengthen my skillsets and discover new ways of teaching hence I’m by taking this course and discussing it  in specific lights

About this community

A digest of resources, groups, players and info on Black, Black females and other minorities in the tech space The 1963 March on Washington was put together with little more than word of mouth. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of #MLK Speech, w held a Google Plus Hangout on Air. To continue the conversation this community was set up to collate, curate, collect and support the continuing dialogue among black leaders in tech across the web. It is the continuation of a discussion gaining ground in the US and a June 20th presentation to BDPA-NY chapter at Microsoft's headquarters - “Challenging the Divide, Perceptions, Stereotypes, Myths, Misconceptions and Realities as to the “lack of minority-owned businesses in today’s Tech Sector! “

SOTBP Conference originally shared:
 
Will the Government Shutdown if happen, affect you?  Do you remember the last one?   We need #netneutrality.  This will affect the economics & enterprise of Our community.    They have a federal bill on the table to eliminate all waivers of vaccinations which include medical, religious or philosophical.   This is not a light matter. Do you know what is in the vaccines?  Do you ask for the ingredients in the vaccine like many do for the brand of clothes on them?  In "many" NY & California are not allowing children that aren't vaccinated in head starts or child care.  This affect the single parent and the economically challenge of their respect as a human.  Did you know Mississippi & West Virginia doesn't allow for any vaccine waivers AT ALL!   #BlackParentsLive #statebp #bpnow
