This week, we’ll get to know Faye Hayes, CTO and co-founder of PlayLoops, Dev Bootcamp grad, and my co-worker at Backstage Capital. I asked her about what it’s like to co-found a startup right after graduating from a programming bootcamp.
I really wanted to talk to Faye about this because I’ve been wanting to start a company of my own. If I’m being honest, I got into tech with the intention of eventually having my own startup. But because of imposter syndrome (thinking I don’t yet know enough to start a company), and needing money to survive, I just settled on working for someone else for a few years before starting my own thing.
I bet there are a lot of juniors out there who think they need to get experience before working on their own startup. Faye shows us that this isn’t necessarily the case. You may not have tons of experience, but you have the skills, so you can build something great.
I should really take my own advice. Anyway, keep reading to learn more about Faye and her work with PlayLoops.
