A Wynning Idea

Would you start a new business in a field you’ve never worked in, after moving to a brand new city where you know no one? That’s what Juha and Johanna Mikkola did when they started Wyncode Academy. Today on our podcast, the Endeavor Miami entrepreneurs speak to MCAAD President Kerry Healey about building their business, and the success of their graduates, their latest commitment to social justice issues, and the co-founders’ beliefs about the American Dream. “What we're seeing over and over again with our graduates -- the fact that technology and technology careers are really the way to live out that American Dream in modern America. I think entrepreneurship is a huge part of that in technology.”
