Howie Chang - Forward School

Industry-ready Skills for the Tech Sector

This week we are joined by Howie Chang of Forward School, which is equipping aspiring students and tech professionals with industry-ready skills required for the fast-moving tech sector.

This was a great conversation to discuss how Howie came to launch an education focused startup.  We talk about building a curriculum and getting accreditation.  We then move onto scaling the business.
