Q1.What is your project/business about?
DNI Talent Solutions is a tech recruitment company doing what it can to make tech a more diverse and inclusive place – “DNI is in our DNA”. Essentially, it’s combining our passion for tech with our passion for D&I, which runs through our company culture, our offerings and, of course, our partners who we know are the real experts.
Q2.Where did the original idea stem from?
Obviously it’s come at a time where people are ready to hear the message, as the world is generally trending towards being more ethical – whether that’s the rise of D&I officers or sustainable business models. But yeah I think for all of us it’s about combining our knowledge of tech with caring about D&I - you know me from when I started Study Streak that it’s something I’ve been pushing for a while, so it just felt like a natural progression.
Q3. What challenges have you experienced in your journey so far?
Time! I’m a bit lucky that it being startup attempt #2 , I can say I’ve learned from the past and maybe the journey so far has been a bit smoother. I’d say before it was a case of having a lot of time & energy but no clue – whereas now there’s a lot of things I’d love to do but I’ve learned the benefit of protecting my time & energy even if it means going slower!
Q4. What is that you are trying to achieve by the end of the year?
I think a lot of it for us is around learning and educating. We have a big vision to take the lead in making tech a more inclusive place but like with anything, that means constantly educating ourselves and then others.
Q5. What do you want the legacy of your project/business to be known for?
Yeah I think kind of linked to above we want to be known for making that impact. As many people who know me will know, one of my favourite quotes is about “sparking the mind”.
So whether we’re making that impact directly, or we’re motivating others to make the changes that tech needs to see it’s a win!
