E34: Aashni Shah on putting in the effort to settle in

You've got to do the work.

Colored and black women entrepreneurs are among the Canadian market's most qualified, highly educated, and skilled entrepreneurs. But they still have to deal with systemic racism, bias, sexism, access to networks, mentoring, and sponsorship.

I could go on and on.

But the point is that some people don't let that stop them.

Aashni Shah of HypeDocs is one of those people.

The two-time startup founder joined us on The Newcomers Podcast to chat about:

  • Her motivations

  • Realizing her opportunities were different as a person of color

  • Language as a bridge

  • Putting in the effort

  • Her Dad’s influence on her approach to business

Enjoy! And remember…

…Integration is a two-way street. You have to put in the work.
