The Tech.MN Podcast


Dec 24, 2019

On Episode 16 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and special guest host, Bri McCullough, welcome Tyler Olson, Founder of Shyld Academy, on a special TCSW edition of The Tech.MN Podcast to talk serial entrepreneurship. 

Tyler shares his story of starting more than ten companies and earning a spot as a  Best Place to Work in Minneapolis for one. He gets candid about the challenges of entrepreneurship and we dive into the romanticization of being a founder.

Tyler walks us through his latest venture as founder of Shyld Academy, a brand created to educate the public and train the future talent force on cyber security. He also appropriately freaks us out about the lack of security surrounding text messages, and Echos, and emails, oh my!

“The roller coaster has been fun. But it has its high highs and its low lows, right? And to be mindful of that and to prepare for that is complicated.”

“As an entrepreneur I thrive off of variety and something new and I love how the Twin Cities has a very substantial amount of that.”
