Breaking Into Startups - Picture With Founders


You Can Break Into Tech From Any Background. Get Connected To The Startup Community.

The mission of the Breaking Into Startups Podcast is to demonstrate that it is possible to break into tech from any background by featuring stories of people who turned their perceived disadvantages into advantages.

It doesn’t matter what school you went to, how high your GPA is, or what struggle you’ve been through. All that matters is what you can do…

We've had an incredible inbound interest from people with non-traditional backgrounds like struggling students, people facing discrimination or lacking access, veterans, single parents, homelessness, career switchers, people that never graduated from high school or college, immigrants, and people that were formerly incarcerated discuss their journey into tech. Regardless of their journey, our guests got amazing jobs in Product Management, Design, Engineering, Business Development and Sales in startup companies.

Please help us celebrate their journey into tech and build our community.
