On this week’s episode we’ll take a look the constantly merging trend of fashion and technology and the new era of “Femmetech”. Aniyia Williams, founder of Tinsel and the Dipper Audio Necklace will reveal what it takes to be successful as female entrepreneur of color in a relatively white, male dominated industry.
Aniyia’s campaign (http://bit.ly/2lZf5lr) raised over $50K in 2015, and having successfully fulfilled on her initial campaign is now looking to expand into retail. We’ll get into her strategies for getting the right manufacturer, how she’s approaching retail, and how FemmeTech (as she’s dubbed it) requires a slightly different approach than traditional consumer electronic products.
