Ep 16:  What’s your path to purpose?: Tope Mitchell

How does a sociology professor with no tech experience come to found an award-winning retail technology startup? I interview Tope Mitchell about her career transitions from sociology graduate student to corporate insights director to tech founder. Sidebar: if you’re a researcher and don’t know what insights are, you definitely want to listen to this episode.  Her curiosity for applied sociology combined with her relentless desire to create a more inclusive world for her young daughter led her to a $30K startup award and a new career in record-breaking time.
