Backstage Capital is a venture capital fund that invests in exceptional women, people of color, and LGBT tech founders. Started from scratch about 18 months ago, we have now invested more than $1M across 30+ companies in the U.S.
And we're just getting started.
I'm your host, Founder & Managing Partner Arlan Hamilton. We'll go behind-the-scenes to show you what it's like to build a fund from scratch, and give you deep insights into what investors are really looking for. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You might steal a donut. But that'll have nothing to do with us. Keep it fresh!
