The tech entrepreneur and Director of the Yellow Accelerator at Snap Inc., Mike Su, chatted with host Michael Redd about how his career started with a comic book company, why taking the right risks strengthens your entrepreneurial drive, and choosing “the road less traveled.”

“This moment has shown the importance of when leaders rise and leaders falter, in times of crisis … When the future’s uncertain, who are the ones that are willing to have difficult conversations, to point to things that are hopeful, roll up our sleeves, and bring the people forward?” – Mike Su

Yellow is an incubator described as a launchpad for creatives and entrepreneurs, and “... an ecosystem designed to serve companies at the intersection of creativity and technology.”

The Silicon Beach tech influencer is also the former Chief Product Officer at mitú, and Head of Product at Upworthy.
