What we're about

Join this group to learn, to meet other entrepreneurs with disabilities and to get inspired! We have speakers come and discuss topics like how to use social media for business, how to start a nonprofit organization and how to fundraise and other startup topics.

This is also a great opportunity to make friends and learn about other resources in the community.

As a group, we meet weekly via Zoom.

We also post events throughout the month that the community might be interested in.

Hope to see you at our next MeetUp.

How do we use Data Science to Better Manage our Disability and Startup?

We're happy to have Dr. Angel,Curious, Creative, & Ethical Data Analytics Scientist + Strategic Leader & LION Connector share her expertise with entrepreneurship, disability and how we can also use data to make our live and business better. A bit about her: "I want to help others understand how an ethical data strategy methodology can help improve all of our lives for the better, both in a business and personal sense. "I live and breath data into everything I do because data is like a fine wine, it pairs nicely with everything." I am a curious and dynamic data analytics scientist dedicated to leading individuals and organizations to recognize the previously unrealized value of data, especially as it relates to overall business strategy, operational efficiency, problem-solving, data management, automation, and business intelligence. I split my time between consulting and teaching this necessary and under-realized skillset because I am committed to being part of a creative and comprehensive solution to the current data literacy skills gap. Data literacy is a skill set I believe everyone should be given the opportunity to explore and understand for the overall societal, as well as business benefits. Additionally, I am committed to community impact, lifelong learning, and authentic analytical leadership that empowers people to work smart."
