Tech founder Matt Joseph addresses the elephant in the room of racial bias

Matt Joseph has the kind of resume investors normally throw
money at. His undergraduate degree is from Princeton University, he has a
J.D. and an MBA, and his company was borne out of Y Combinator, the
most prestigious tech accelerator in the world.

But lately, in the 40 to 50 meetings Joseph has had with investors for his company Locent
— a tech startup he pitches as MailChimp for texts — he’s been told
he’s not the right “technical fit” or that they “can’t see [him]
building this kind of business.” So he took to Twitter to air his grievances.
