In episode 3 of Ignite Alabama I talk with Jennifer Skjellum, executive director of Tech Birmingham and the Central Alabama chapter of Angel Investor Management Group.
Jennifer moved to Alabama from Starville, Mississippi when her husband became chair of the Computer Science department at UAB.
She's a successful tech entrepreneur with several successful business ventures under her belt and she's now involved in helping other entrepreneurs and start-up visionaries grow and launch their businesses through her work with the AIM Group, Tech Birmingham and a new 501(c)(3), Tech Alabama.
In this episode, we cover everything from the recent Kaufmann Foundation report which ranked Alabama 49th in startups to a new coding program for teen girls.
This interview also appears on the Birmingham Shines podcast (episode 12).
