EPISODE 4: THE FACTOR WITH SONNY MAYUGBA
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we dined at restaurants, hopped on planes to visit new cities, dropped toddlers off at daycare, and danced the night away at family & corporate gatherings, without a second thought. Now, local health policies, outbreak levels, and guidance from local community officials is paramount to navigating a COVID-19 world.
But for how long? How do we open society back up responsibly? A group of brilliant people are embarking on a technology solution to navigate life and they call it CVKey. Join us as we explore their solution and what the benefits and potential risks will be with the adoption of CVKey.
The Factor episodes include LIVE Q&A where, YOU, our audience can chime in to ask your burning questions. Join live, ask your questions, and win Spero swag!
