Arlan Hamilton. Venture Capitalist. Author. Locati

Season 4, Episode 4 of 10

Arlan Hamilton is the CEO and Founder of Backstage Capital which funds startup companies that are specifically owned and operated by Women, Black, LatinX, and LGBTQ founders, a group of people that typically receive only 3% of all funding available. Once homeless, Arlan shares what it was like to break into the almost exclusively white male world of venture capital. Her best-selling book "It's About Damn Time" is based on her personal journey to create the "seemingly impossible." With candor and curiosity, Arlan sits down at her favorite restaurant in Los Angeles, Hotel Cafe, to share her unique story and her vision for funding "underestimated founders" and catalyzing their mission and purpose.
