What a brilliant way to kick off Season Three of the Entreprenora Podcast! Join me and Backstage Capital founder Arlan Hamilton as we talk about the power of being underestimated and creating opportunities despite the odds.

Arlan talks about the "blissful ignorance" that can give us the courage to go into rooms that might scare us, about changing the dire statistics in Venture Capital (more than 90% of all VC funding goes to white men founders), persisting through the three-and-a-half year wait to get her first investor, and reframing the dialogue around what others think of us.

Arlan offers rare candor about being a change-maker in venture capital, dismantling internal hurdles, being self-full, and "writing your own headlines." Her interview is one you will want to listen to again and again.
