My name is Sophia Matveeva and I started a tech company without a technical background during my MBA at Chicago Booth. It took time, blood, sweat and tears (mostly mine), but our app became Mashable's App of the Day and my company was ranked as one of the top global fashion tech startups by Grazia.
I started sharing my learning on Forbes and at business schools around the world. I created Tech for Non-Techies because I wish it had been around when I delved into the confusing and jargon filled world of tech.
"At London Business School, we built a six-month programme dedicated to helping students transition into tech. Tech for Non-Techies was one of the most valuable workshops we ran as part of the programme."
