We are in a “show me, don’t tell me” space where people want visual explanations now. A hot new company, Wikisway is making data more visual- helping us see where connection lie rather than reading about it. We’ve had two of the company’s founders, Grace and Kate on the show tonight to talk about data, making connections, tech, and starting a company on a budget.
Don’t forget to check out our ACTION calendar, and participate with hashtag #YFEchat.
