Founder, investor, and now champion for under-resourced entrepreneurs through Google for Startups. These are a few of the many hats worn by Jewel Burks Solomon. Jewel's conversation with Next Play founder Ryan Nece goes deep on her breadth of experience. This 3x Google employee talks about what she's learned in her several roles at the company, how they have helped her in her subsequent roles, and what she is trying to accomplish now. 
 
Jewel shares some great insight on topics such as the evolving role of HBCUs in the tech world, Atlanta as a center of industry, and what people should be trying to get out of an internship. Hint: her first stint at Google started as an intern. Tune in for a great perspective on the plight of a diverse entrepreneur who has paved the way for many more to follow in her very large footsteps!
