Nancy Evbuomwan, Strategist and Business Agility Coach, on the ways she has been treated differently.

  • Being in a minority and feeling like it
  • Realising many founders have similar backgrounds and education
  • How the Black Lives Matter movement is relevant to the UK startup scene

As well as being a professional Agile Coach, Nancy is a podcast host and a strategic advisor for startups, predominantly with female founders. In this video she discusses how over time being a minority in the startup community became more apparent, including a colleague deciding “to touch your hair because they're intrigued by it without asking your permission” and realising lots of founders had very similar backgrounds.

Nancy also talks about how the Black Lives Matter movement is relevant to the UK startup scene and the importance of letting data inform your company culture.
