If you have a busy work schedule or a young family to take care of, you may not have enough time for an on-campus degree program. An online masters in business administration program from Washington State University enables you to balance between your responsibilities and career development.
However, online degree programs are not equal. The quality of the degree you attain at the end of the program depends on your choice of institution. This choice can be hard to make because all institutions give similar curriculum and promise high-quality degrees. You must ask the right questions before enrolling for an online program to graduate with a quality degree. Here are some basic [...]
The Internet is constantly changing. Anyone in the online world should be watching how the online economy is changing. This is a time of shift in the online world. With the recent announcement of London as the capital of Fintech, it signals that Silicon Valley doesn’t have it all its own way.
But far away in Silicon Valley Mary Meeker, from Kleiner Perkins, announced her State of the Net Address for 2016. Her words provided a lot for businesses to think about. So what do businesses need to take away from this address?
Global Internet Growth is Slowing Down
There were 213 pages in the original report, but it’s easy to boil them down to a few key points. The main [...]
The most telling aspect of the Structure Security conference came in the form of back-to-back panels on Tuesday afternoon. The first comprised of Qualcomm, Intel, and ARM; and the second: Facebook, Uber, and Slack. The contrast in these two panels titled ‘Defining what it Means to be Trusted’ and ‘To Secure It, Open It Up’ respectively, embodies the massive changes that are underway in cybersecurity. It was incredibly noticeable how differently companies like ARM and Intel think about and approach security as compared to the Facebook’s and Uber’s of the world. Granted, right out of the gate there’s a huge distinction between hardware and [...]

Impact investing, race relations, practiced inclusion, social capital. While my first piece on SOCAP came from a more tactical topic (they invited me to startup pitches, I was grateful to attend), this piece came from a much larger issue consuming minds these days, both in tech and in the nation at large: racism, sexism, and discrimination in all forms. In fact, my interest when registering for SOCAP was chiefly two-fold: 1) impact investing 2) impacting culture. That is to say, attendance was tied to this issue that shows itself relentlessly in the United States, in its cities with bullets, in its companies with comfortable stereotypes, and sadly even in its presidential politics.

My first SOCAP was illuminating to say the least, and not just because I was excited to see what the world of Impact [Investing] was all about, but also because I got to hear firsthand what young companies in countries with little to no venture capital do to get off the ground. What do they do? What they have to. It turns out a big piece of that equation is working with private foundations and government entities, and so perhaps appropriately, I was keenly interested when the World’s second largest Telco invited me to their startup pitch [...]
