'Look for Opportunities' to Increase Diversity in Crypto - Ep.128

Steven McKie, CEO and founding partner at Amentum Capital, discusses the incidents involving Amy Cooper and George Floyd and the resulting protests, and how systemic racism affects black entrepreneurs in crypto. In this episode we discuss:

  • His personal story from a childhood in poverty to running a crypto hedge fund
  • How companies that want to hire from underrepresented groups have to change their habits to reach out to those communities
  • Why underrepresented communities can be easily left behind at the time of technological revolutions
  • Why Black Americans express more interest in crypto than white Americans and yet are still underrepresented
  • What he says when people say that underrepresented groups choose not to be involved in crypto since there are no barriers
