Recode’s Kara Swisher heads to Louisville, Ky., to talk about the future of
work with a panel of local-minded techies: Interapt CEO Ankur Gopal, Code
Louisville founder Rider Rodriguez, TechHire Eastern Kentucky student Crystal

them to become entrepreneurial, and why existing tech companies and investors
should be looking to historically less-techie places like Kentucky for workers

discusses what needs to happen to help entrepreneurial people across the
country find their next move. Read more
