Today, with a team of 17, Blavity reaches more than 20M readers per month, runs 2 major conferences a year, and has raised over 1M in funding. Morgan joins us to share her story, how she started her career in tech, what motivated her to launch Blavity, how she had to approach fundraising, why they started a pair of conferences, and much more!
