My Top 30 People to Know in Startups Around Phoenix

Thank for posting. I always appreciate when people decenter and share the spotlight. Perhaps a bit more racially diverse group would be nice to see. On top of Phoenix’s predilection for making “local heroes,” Phoenix media outlets also overwhelmingly concentrate their attention on young white talent. This list, though well-intended, is no exception. I would love to see our local leaders, and city in general, recognize the innovative talent of our Latino/a, Black, and Indigenous visionaries. And there are hundreds.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
