Key Takeaways: 

  • It is critical for start-ups to have support at the foundational stage. 
  • Women of color face unique challenges in the realm of investing, VC and getting funding and it’s important to understand this disproportionate scale we are working within.
  • Showcasing entrepreneurs on a platform like a podcast can be the propelling force they need for success.
  • Funding opportunities are even harder to find as a Black or Brown entrepreneur, and especially so for female Black and Brown entrepreneurs. This is something that needs to be considered more broadly.
  • This is one way we can uplift underrepresented voices which is vital to changing the overall landscape.

Quotes from the Show:

  • “Having paid customers having paid users, that's a different way to get a company funded because it's actually from revenue. And so that's really key in terms of what we'll be doing with the experts.”
  • “You're creating a safe space where these entrepreneurs can shine, for these entrepreneurs to share their stories.---For them to be in a place that they trust you three, that means that they're going to then be able to be vulnerable, and that means that they're going to connect with the audience, and that means that they have a better chance to get found and get funded.”
  • “The opportunity to potentially accelerate the success of entrepreneurs that look like us was a no brainer for me.”
  • “Entrepreneurship wasn't something I considered for my path until last year. I started feeling like there was more that I wanted to do.---It was worth the career move. So I'm just excited to be in this position in this phase of my life.”
  • “Sharing what we know and what we've learned over the years. Because from my standpoint and my history, if you don't know about it, if you can't see it, then it's really hard to figure out how to get there.”
