CONNECTIVITY THROUGH STORIES
I started this platform because I wanted to learn about the founders of early stage startups in emerging markets. With time, this evolved into a multi-content brand with a newsletter, community and podcast.
Welcome to Rare Birds, a digital brand for Rare Ones. My name is Jo-Ann, I am the Architect and Chieftess behind the brand.
