Questions Asked
Spread the Message

Are you coming to #MyData2019 conference? Let's spread the message and let's be proud of this awesome event MyData Community is putting together!

Do you know or want to learn Airtable or Pipedrive CRM?

Anyone happen to be good in Airtable (or want to learn that?) Similarly, if anyone is interested in learning Pipedrive CRM, some help is welcomed!

Make AI optional?

My one major requirement for ethical AI: all services that utilize/incorporate AI modeling of me must allow me to optionally disable AI. I.e. opt out of the AI modeling of me. @Oguzhan Gencoglu mentioned however that this might not be possible.

If you are an entrepreneur who is currently fundraising, or has been fundraising recently (successfully or unsuccessfully) located in or around or with ties to Silicon Valley, for a company that follows MyData principles, please get in touch with me.
