Tech Intersect #52: Arlan Hamilton-Arlan's Academy and the Blueprint for the New "Higher Learning" Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

 In this episode of Tech Intersect, I welcome Arlan Hamilton BACK to Tech Intersect. Arlan is the Founder and Managing Partner of Backstage Capital, a venture capital firm dedicated to minimizing funding disparities in tech by investing in high-potential founders who are people of color, women, and/or LGBT. Started from scratch in 2015, Backstage has now raised more than $12 million and invested in more than 150 startup companies led by underestimated founders. In 2018, they launched a four-city accelerator program in Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, and London. Arlan has been featured on the cover of Fast Company magazine as the first Black woman non-celebrity to do so, and is the author of “It’s About Damn Time” and host of the weekly podcast “Your First Million”. Arlan and her mother, Mrs. Earline Butler-Sims, announced their scholarship program which kicked-off with scholarships for Black students at Oxford University and HBCU Dillard University.  When Arlan was last here, we were talking about the release of It’s About Damn Time. Arlan is back to talk about Arlan’s Academy and I am thrilled to be one of the instructors in this dynamic team of subject matter experts.
