Minter Dialogue Episode #176This interview is with Russ Shaw, serial entrepreneur, angel investor and founder of the Tech London Advocates, which is a community of over 2,300 volunteers keen to promote London as a thriving center for tech and entrepreneurialism. In this discussion, we discuss the changing role of Facebook for breaking news (in the wake of the Paris Attacks), the importance of women in tech, how big companies and small agile entrepreneurs can better collaborate and integrate, as well as the right balance of profiles for one’s Board of Directors.
