Keith Posted November 11, 2021 Share Posted November 11, 2021 January 26, 2021 Tech Intersect with Tonya Evans Podcast Summary In this episode of Tech Intersect, I connect with Tavonia Evans of the GUAP Foundation and and creator of GUAPCoin. Tavonia Evans is a data scientist, mother of 8, and entrepreneur. After starting her company Safe2Meet, a peer-to-peer identity verification platform, she sought investment in 2015. But over the course of her experience, she learned than less than 1 percent of venture funding goes to Black female founders. This realization, along with her struggle to secure funding, inspired Tavonia to create a product that specifically serves the interests of the Black community. So she started GUAP Coin in 2017 to help the community maintain wealth and encourage participation in the Black economy. But GUAP Coin isn’t just about financial prosperity. Tavonia understood early on how valuable data can be, and the role it can play in eliminating economic disparity. With blockchain and cryptocurrency, GUAP can dispel the myth of the “disappearing dollar” with a wealth of data that demonstrates the potential growth factor not just to coin holders, but to future enterprises and investors in Black businesses. https://www.audible.com/pd/Tech-Intersect-53-Tavonia-Evans-Leveraging-Defi-and-Data-for-Economic-Empowerment-and-Financial-Inclusion-Podcast/B08TGDNDG2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
