Episode Notes

In addition to introducing HackHunter, which continuously monitors for malicious WiFi networks, Tracie Thompson takes us through the evolution of their product and strategy.  An important element of our conversation is hearing Tracie talk through the benefit of accelerator programs and mentors, not just from an intellectual perspective, but the power of the network.  

We also spoke about the diversity considerations inside an early-stage startup, and the role of the network and startup communities can play in bringing a broader perspective.
