Presented by The Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Lab
Join us for a conversation on Disrupting Venture Capital with Arlan Hamilton, Founder + Managing Partner at Backstage Capital. The event is at October 18 from 4:00-5:00pm at the Brown Lounge.
Arlan built a venture capital fund from the ground up, while homeless. She is the Founder and Managing Partner of Backstage Capital, a fund that is dedicated to minimizing funding disparities in tech by investing in high-potential founders who are of color, women, and/or LGBT. Started from scratch in 2015, Backstage has now invested nearly $5m into over 80 startup companies led by underestimated founders.
She is also featured on the cover of Fast Company magazine’s October 2018 issue!
