Micro Talk: Running a Tech Start-up as a Non-Techie
with Hermione Taylor, The DoNation
Hermione is founder of The DoNation, which helps companies to save money through engaging employees in saving energy. The DoNation was born when Hermione decided to cycle to Morocco, but decided to ask her friends to sponsor her with action instead of cash. She didn’t know HTML from HTTP, and she’d didn’t know a single web developer, but roped a friend-of-a-friend into creating a basic WordPress site to act as a proof of concept. Three years, two web agencies, and a CTO later, and after nine months on the Wayra tech accelerator, she can (almost) pull it off as the founder of a tech start-up.
During this short talk, Hermione will be sharing the challenges she's faced over the past three years and her top tips of how she overcame them to help your journey as a non-techie that bit easier.
