In this episode of Tech Can't Save Us, CEO and Co-Founder of Literal Humans Paul David talks to James McMillan, the Founder of myNexus, a new platform that is creating the UK’s leading Entrepreneurial Ecosystem which uses technology to smart-match entrepreneurs and investors, increasing and accelerating investment in early-stage business.

James and Paul talk about building a healthier funding ecosystem for underestimated and underfunded tech founders in the UK and beyond. They discuss the resistance to eliminating barriers to funding for promising, new founders within the angel investing and venture capital communities.

There's even an interesting link between what James is working on and modern online dating apps!

The two discuss how to build a product that overcomes systemic issues in the funding ecosystem and the danger of designing in a way that builds in existing biases. James talks about how to address the core problem of "the wrong people coming together to do the wrong deals." It's a massive challenge in the funding ecosystem and James is on track to address it.
