Show Notes

The Story
In this week’s episode we dive into what Silicon Valley considers “hustle” and how it may need to update its definition. We also find out how Arlan first got into venture capital—after months of sleeping on the floor at San Francisco International Airport. Plus, meet one venture capitalist who really gets Arlan’s goat.

This is the second episode in a six-part series on Arlan Hamilton and her company, Backstage Capital.
