20 | Technology for the Creative Economy with Jasmine RuKim
On Episode 20 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and special guest host, Bri McCullough, welcome Jasmine RuKim, CEO and Co-founder of Monicat Data, on a special TCSW edition of The Tech.MN Podcast to talk about technology and art.
Jasmine shares the origin story of Monicat Data, their focus on creative teams and artists, and how word of mouth has propelled them forward Jasmine thoughtfully breaks down the transition from years one to year two in a startup. A member of cohort 1 at Lunar Startups, Jasmine tells us about the value she received from the experience.
We talk about The Yellow Summit, a data for art workshop that brings together the art and tech community, the 2019 event, and the future of the affair. On top of it all Jasmine works with GiveMN, serves as an adjunct professor at MCAD, and Minneapolis Parks Foundation. We talk about how she balances all of this and how she balances working with her partner.
