This week, Leanne talks to Mike Tozer, the founder and CEO of Xceptional, about how his sister’s struggle with employment led him to create a company that recognises, celebrates and harnesses the unique strengths of people with autism.
Mike discusses how Xceptional has partnered with leading global companies and even won $1 million in funding from the Google.org Impact Challenge.
Then, in less than three minutes, Leanne ‘Leannesplains’ the importance of intergenerational entrepreneurship, and how standing up to ageism can help your start-up.
