Kristina and I released some very exciting episodes over the past two months! The first was with Jennifer Francis, the co-founder of SheBoot and an angel investor. We talk about what factors most determine a company's success, how startup ecosystems are created, and why she co-founded SheBoot.
Our other episode was with Thusha Agampodi, who is the Director of Engineering at Aurora Solar, a cloud-based solar platform that uses data, automation, and AI to make solar projects simple and predictable (where she leads 5 engineering teams!). We discuss what goes into building an engineering team, how to manage personalization and simplicity when building systems, and approaches to allocating resources in terms of talent, budget, and time in tech projects.
