Charlotte Angel Connection Episode 027: Betsy Hauser Idilbi, Co-Founder of Tech Talent South Part II

 

Today, we welcome back Betsy Hauser Idilbi, Co-Founder of Tech Talent South to the show.  Last week, Betsy spoke about Tech Talent South and how it got off the ground on so many different levels.

This week we wanted to change the direction of the conversation and talk about the future for Tech Talent South, Charlotte and Betsy.  It’s even better than Part I and I hope you enjoy it as we discuss the following:

The placement rates of coding schools – how they are ‘ranked’ – and Tech Talent South’s recent step into training employees at corporations.

How Tech Talent South plans on using Charlotte as a training ground for other cities moving forward.

Their recent decision to raise capital from Cramer Mountain Growth Partners – a new VC fund in the Charlotte area.

How has Tech Talent South not only survived but thrived while some in the coding world have gone under recently?

Would Betsy have a Co-Founder if she starts another business in the future?

What would Betsy like to see in Charlotte in the future that doesn’t exist today or when Tech Talent South was getting off the ground.

And much, much more.

It’s a great podcast and hope you enjoy the episode.  Please check in next week as we interview Yamile Nesrala who is the Director of Miami and Charlotte for Venture For America.
