Welcome to Episode 5 of Founder’s Focus. TECH CORPS is preparing to host its annual TECHCORPShack on Saturday, November 6, 2021, in Akron, Columbus and Zanesville, Ohio. Students from all over the state will come together to learn how to program and build a mobile app in a nurturing and fun environment as they compete for prizes. Today we are speaking with Kyle Parker, founder of ClipDart, an on-demand barber app for those with minority hair textures. We hope his story will not only inspire our students, but anyone who sees a community need and believes a mobile app could help meet that need.
