Show Notes

Quote - “Founders need to realise that investors love founders that have failed before because it is in your failings, you learn the most.”

The Afropolitan Podcast spotlights Afropolitans who aren’t afraid to step into the unknown and walk in purpose. With this podcast we hope to empower Africans in the Diaspora to harness their full potential and contribute to the development of a bold and progressive black community.

Our guests will share their working formulas, the hard facts about leaving familiar terrain, embracing the unknown, and staying relevant afterwards.

This episode features Kyle Maloney, Co-Founder of Tech Beach; a startup with an active community designed to connect the Caribbean with the Global Technology Ecosystem.

Klye studied Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and was exposed to entrepreneurship early on which culminated in Co-founding Tech Beach to offer a much needed service in the region.

He is passionate about empowering people and companies in the Caribbean through technology to scale and solve pertinent issues.

Listen and enjoy as Kyle talks to us about his journey with Tech Beach, his background and plans for the future.
