038: Somesh Selvachandran – feminism, equality and the silicon roundabout

In this episode, we are joined by London-based father of two, Somesh Selvachandran.

After working for ten years as an Executive Director in the technology department of a global investment bank Somesh took the leap to co-found a startup.

As part of the entrepreneurial journey, he has experienced triumphs and challenges that we can learn a lot from.

In this interview we explore what has and hasn’t helped him along the way. As well as, why he describes himself as a feminist, life on the silicon roundabout as a parent and what Parentpreneurs can do to improve equality.
