is Kennedy still writing codes at this time?🤣🤔
Jennifer Chou

Dang I just got chills… my takeaway from that is always follow up (when you do cold outreach) and exceed expectations

Hi everyone, I'm ChrisCo-founder Codemi Technologies, we're a team of 3 and all self taught.Truth is we're trying to get ahold of all this, we are good developers but I know there's something we're missing, building a startup and quality products differs from knowing how to code. we just need to find a way around
Jennifer Chou
47:03
@Chris - often good devs need to learn a bit about marketing! And product/UX design (these are courses we have: https://www.entrylevel.net/). If you email me at jennifer@entrylevel.net I’ll see if I can get you coupons for your entire team of 3
Chinedu
47:21
Kennedy is smart... I love the way his mind works
Jennifer Chou
47:39
That goes for all startup founders here! Email me at jennifer@entrylevel.net and I’ll try to get you course coupons for your whole team
Samuel Chris
47:55
thanks Jen, I'll reach out
Iman
49:03
@Jen, I am a team of 1 (for now) , do I qualify for the coupon. 🙈
Chinyere Otuonye (Sparks Consults)
49:04
Thanks Jennifer.
Jennifer Chou
49:38
@iman email me and I’ll see what I can do! Will probably be able to get one for you anyway as long as you are working on a startup cuz we love startups 🥰
Iman

Thank you, much appreciated 😊

I have problem around team building especially getting people to believe in my idea, so they can commit to invest with their skills. Since I can't pay them.
Chinedu
51:44

Charles Egwuh
52:09
How can I find my way around it?
Mishael

kippa has been one of the best solutions to SMEs pain points in Nigeria. I remember how SMEs I enlisted on Google my business complained of to the inability to keep their book keeping, receipts and accounts.I went back to as many as I could when I discovered kippa and they couldn't be happier.@kenedy, you and your team are doing an amazing job at kippa
Samuel Chris
53:11
@charlesWe all face that hurdle building a startup, my team lacks designers cuz we can't afford to pay one, I found myself taking a course to fill that Gap 😂
Jennifer Chou
54:50
I think that’s why someone said earlier that founders should focus on fundraising and recruiting - EntryLevel’s CEO got investors before making first hires and recruiting. However if you are bootstrapping, I believe there are some volunteers you would need to recruit (but have to make sure they are motivated and believe in company’s vision). CatchAFire.org is a volunteer platform, there are many EntryLevel UX Design students who also are looking to volunteer
Joshua

@charles @Samuel
Jennifer Chou

Try this platform for finding team members and potential investors too: https://kern.al/register?invitecode=ENTRYLEVEL

Jennifer Chou

@Joshua can I link your website as a resource on our events page? I will be uploading all resources + event recording there, would love to include your resource: https://www.entrylevel.net/events
Samuel Chris

Jennifer Chou
