Couldn’t be more excited to back Jessica in this!

She stays out of the limelight, but there are few people on the planet who have done more to enable founders to achieve their potential.

@rubenharris @karlitalilianaI @Career_Karma @LambdaSchoolt @dahveedghh @appacademyioi @omadahealthnk you need connections; it’s our job to provide those.

Off the top of my head I can think of a half dozen Lambda School students who are black or latinx employed at the top companies in Silicon Valley.

@jesslayica Hey Jessica, I’m inspired by your story.

We’re not a CS degree, but I’d like to invite you to attend Lambda School (entirely online, 9 months full-time, 18 months part-time) for free.

Normal we’re free until a student is hired. For you I’d waive tuition completely.

Today is a day I’ve been waiting for for a long time.

We’re launching living stipends for Lambda School students. We pay you $2,000/month for 9 months while you attend.

You pay back 10% of salary for 5 years, and only when you’re making $50k+.

People generally underestimate two things

1. How hard it is to get your foot in the door as an outsider. I lived in a car for months in Palo Alto with no prospects, connections or money to break into Silicon Valley

2. How wide doors are open once you’re on the inside and hustle

Uber and Lyft now doing >1 million rides per day. Most of those are random contractors picking up random people.

There are 2 million Airbnb stays per day. 2 million strangers staying in strangers’ homes every night.

People are, on average, much better than we’d suspect.

I have a $3,000 computer with 16GB of RAM and a beefed up processor, but Slack, Chrome and Spotify bring it to its knees.

A messaging app, a web browser, and a music player. I could comfortably run those on the hardware I had 20 yrs ago.
