Starting a business these days in educational hardware and software takes more than technology. Guest Connie Hu explains. Connie is the CEO and CoFounder of ArcBotics, an educational robotics company. Previously she advised top global nonprofit leaders on strategic planning and K12 STEM Education at The Bridgespan Group. She holds an honors degree in Anthropology from Dartmouth. Today host Pius Wong talks with Connie about how ArcBotics got started, the philosophy of open-source tech, relationships with teachers in the nonprofit and commercial worlds, and how back in the day she found programming loops to be magical.
