Founder and Managing Partner, Backstage Capital
Changing the face of venture capital with Arlan Hammilton
Arlan Hamilton is smashing boundaries in the VC world, where she arrived via an unorthodox path including homelessness and stints in the indie music business. Her mission at Backstage Capital is to deliver well-deserved funding to underrepresented and overlooked minority founders. Her drive and market strategy have inspired Silicon Valley titans like Stewart Butterfield, Marc Andreessen and Chris Sacca to invest. Hamilton, with Summit Series founder Elliott Bisnow, will share her incredible journey and unapologetic assessment of the state of VC.
