Gary Stewart is the founder of FounderTribes, a startup dedicated to diversity and matching businesses or entrepreneurs with the right investors and mentors to help them lead their business in the right direction.Impact Hustlers' Maiko and Gary actually go way back with them crossing paths in Wayra, a technological innovation hub that they both worked in. Even before that, Gary took up law in Yale and shortly after school, he went to Spain for some time off post-graduation. He also shares how his first entrepreneurial stint, which was in real estate, began. He briefly was a professor at the IE Business School in Madrid and was then recruited by Wayra to be its Managing Director, and off to the UK he went.Realizing that the corporate world was not for him nor was working for someone else, he wanted to chart his own path and at the same time diversify entrepreneurship, and so he created FounderTribes. For £9.99 a month, FounderTribes provides its clients with an impressive network of mentors and coaches who will then guide their clients and their companies to becoming investor-ready, by which time they will match them with the appropriate investors based on their stage and vertical.Compared to the US where Gary could easily find investors, he noticed the stark contrast in the UK where, despite him graduating from an Ivy League university, he experienced difficulty finding investors. This, he said, was partly due to race and also due to class. Thankfully, events like Pitch@Palace helped Gary meet the right people who were willing to give him a chance.He also gives great advice for young entrepreneurs who are just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey, and in 10 years, Gary says he envisions proportional representation, that everyone gets a fair chance regardless of race, gender, class, or whatever it may be. Gary's key lessons and quotes from this episode were:“I think there's a point when you realize, "I'm more interested in that bit and solving that challenge," than on the day-to-day of, ‘Can I help corporates to figure out what's going to be their next big product?'” (10:07)“In Spain, I feel like I was more investible than I am in the UK, because in Spain, I was an American first, and I think in the UK, I'm black first, and I didn't quite realize what that meant.” (18:34)“Because when they talk about gender diversity, usually, they're only talking about white women diversity. They're not talking about black women diversity, brown women diversity.” (22:23)“If we create these economies of scale, then the price of entry is a lot more accessible for everyone, which then democratizes entrepreneurship for everyone.” (29:58)“Remember, you're not the first person to blaze a trail, and you're not going to be the last, so if you're going to get into this game as a black person or brown person, know that it's about blazing a trail that requires a certain level of a thick skin, but just get on with it.” (35:50)“All you want is equity. You don't want overrepresentation. You just want everyone to have a fair shot.” (45:40)“FounderTribes is about race. It's about gender. It's about socio-economic. It's about geography. It's about all of the "isms" that keep us locked out.” (46:12)In this episode, we also talked about:Yale, Spain, and Gary's first business venture (2:41)How Gary got into entrepreneurship (6:22)What made Gary leave Wayra to start FounderTribes (8:09)Facts and numbers on funding according to gender and race (14:06)Finding investors in Europe vs. finding investors in AmeSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/impacthustlers)

Guest K.C. Danzansky could barely believe that one could make a major by reading classic literature, analyzing it, and writing about it. She considered her English major not only fun but a good grounding in the liberal arts that would prove useful in a career. But because she loved the literary world, she figured she would remain in it, working at a publishing house or something similar. The famously low salaries and the prospect of living in the publishing mecca of New York City did not appeal, however. So she took a look at the companies that defended on campus for corporate recruiting. Consumer packaged goods giant General Mills seemed open to her liberal arts background and she thought she could put up with sales trips in pant suits for a few years. What she came to realize was that the scope and size of the organization allowed for her to try on a number of roles.While she has remained at the company for 25 years, her husband was the casualty of a round of layoffs. But even that had a silver lining, as both of their time in CPG helped them launch a beverage company that provides the spice in her life.

This week we travelled to Hollywood California to meet with someone everyone has seen, but might not yet know. Courtney started gymnastics at the age of 3. By 7 she was already in competitions. As the years went by and the dream of the olympics started to disappear, it was time to figure out a direction. She became a cheerleader and started applying to Ivy League schools. Despite a 4.0, she didn't get accepted to any of them. Instead she attended college in Hawaii and started doing work in promotions. When a video of her twerking at a party went viral online, she realized that there were actually competitions for that. Naturally, her competitive spirits led her in that unique direction. Fast forward to today, and she now lives in Hollywood working as a dancer in music videos, a social media influenced, and teaches twerk classes all over the country.

Guest Kate Shanahan, Dartmouth '96, had grown up in Hanover in her elementary years and searched for colleges elsewhere. But nothing compared to the College on the Hill and so returned to rediscover the campus she knew so well. It took her time to find her groove but English literature lit a spark for her. Later, she found the Education department and the encounters she had there with professors and the material was life-changing.

Develop for Good pairs students with nonprofits to use tech to make a difference. The founder of the organization, Mary Zhu, is no stranger to the experiences of underserved communities. She's the daughter of two Chinese immigrants and her cultural background was a huge driving force in helping see disparities in marginalized communities… and how to bridge those gaps. In high school, Mary even founded her first nonprofit organization — which aimed to sponsor children in underserved communities by selling cakes to the community. After spending four years at Stanford University, Mary noticed that technology and innovation weren't intersecting with nonprofit spaces — so she decided to change this on her own. Now, she's the co-founder and executive director of Develop for Good, a nonprofit program that “pairs, trains and supports student volunteers as they develop technical product solutions for nonprofits.” Students who are pros at technology are able to gain hands-on experience doing innovative and world-changing work for nonprofits. And nonprofits are able to take their work to the next level through technology. In this episode, Mary talks about how her childhood experiences impacted the work she does now, the value of social work, and the unique nature of her nonprofit — one that affords young people the chance to work in the tech industry without the financial burden Mary is so familiar with.

Instead of asking "am I doing enough to get in?"We should instead be asking if we are spending our time and energy on the activities that matter the most. Why? because asking the question "am I doing enough to get in" leads us to the point where we are too busy to become less busy. It is suffocating and soul-crushing and very ineffective. Just as fire requires space between the combustibles in order to survive, your internal fire-- the fuel that can push you to be outstanding in your own way-- cannot survive if it is suffocated by video games or by extreme business. Instead, make space in your day for quiet reflection, to pursue your interests, and to act on impulse when you are inspired to learn about or ask about something of interest to you. These are the moments, if acted upon, that turn out to be the difference makers.

After graduation, she landed at the Ivy League conference office—and her trajectory in the industry, eventually landing in the athletic director chair, was in motion. A collaborative leader, Sherryta learned early that when you focus on excelling where you are, new opportunities come, and that all the relationships you build along the way prepare you for whatever lies ahead.

It's no secret that the world of business is skewed to serve a certain group of people.If you aren't a cis white male with an Ivy League degree and an impressive resume, your chances of ‘making it' in this industry are slim.And if you're a Black entrepreneur?Those chances are close to nonexistent.Systematic barriers of entry have kept Black entrepreneurs out of the conversation for decades. And while everyone knew of the problem, very few were actively making an effort to help solve it pre-2020.Well, today's guest, Jill Johnson, has been tirelessly working towards breaking down their barriers for decades. Jill is the co-founder and CEO of the Institute for Entrepreneurship Leadership. When she started this business in 2002 with her father, her goal was simple - to help the economic development of minorities through entrepreneurship.Jill's parents ran a newspaper publishing business which meant she had several opportunities growing up to interact with small entrepreneurs and see exactly why they struggled to make payroll.Then, when she got her first job at Goldman Sachs, she was able to come in close contact with people who created tremendous wealth.That's when she realized that they were not people who looked like her or anyone in her community.So, she started her business because she saw that certain groups of people have to face barriers that just shouldn't exist. She understood that there was infrastructure needed not only to help these groups financially but also to offer them hands-on support so they could succeed as entrepreneurs.In today's episode, Jill discusses the various ways she helps Black and minority entrepreneurs, what she feels the biggest barrier to entry really is for POC business owners, and the concept of wealth in the Black community.Here's a peek at what else you can expect: How everyone can help minority businesses The difference between a business owner and an entrepreneur Why not everyone should start a business (and how it's totally okay and fulfilling to be an employee!) How she acknowledges her own privilege and uses it to help other entrepreneurs The problem with angel investors and diversity And more!We could've spoken to Jill for hours.

As a track and field athlete representing Haiti in international competitions for nearly a decade, Samyr Laine was not only among the very best athletes that Haiti has ever seen, he was very easily among the best in the world in his discipline: the triple jump. He is Haiti's national record holder with a jump of 17.39 meters (just over 57 feet), won multiple medals for Haiti at various international competitions (one bronze and one gold at the Central American and Caribbean Games as well as a silver at the Pan American Sports Festival to name a few) and represented Haiti at 3 Pan American Games, 7 World Indoor or Outdoor Championships and 1 Olympic Games. Many times, Samyr was the lone Haitian athlete to qualify for those global championships but he didn't merely attend, he qualified for the finals at the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2013 World Championships, finishing 11th at both global competitions. On several occasions he finished in the top 10 on the world ranking list of top triple jump distances in a particular year, and year in and year out he was a staple on the IAAF Diamond League circuit, which is the top competitive circuit in the sport. Before representing Haiti, Samyr was an NCAA All-American in college, and held the Ivy League conference record for a time; he still holds the Harvard University school record in the triple jump to this day. Aside from his athletic accomplishments, Samyr earned degrees from the aforementioned Harvard University, as well as a master's degree from The University of Texas and a law degree from Georgetown University; the latter of which he earned while traveling the world, competing as a professional athlete and representing Haiti. He is a member of the New York State Bar and is currently the Senior Vice President of Operations and Strategy at Westbrook Inc. where he heads up the company's Good Goods division and oversees all consumer brand incubation, and licensing. Prior to joining Westbrook Inc., Samyr was the Senior Director of Operations for Roc Nation. There, he spearheaded the operations for key growth initiatives for Roc and some of its affiliated companies, launched their new literary division as a partnership with Penguin Random House ,and managed several notable multi-platinum recording artists. Before Roc Nation, Samyr was the Director of Player Relations and Competition for Major League Soccer. He is a published author and also spent several years as an adjunct professor at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. More important than anything mentioned already is Samyr's work as a member of the board of directors of l'Ecole de Choix (a school in Mirebalais, Haiti), and formerly as an advisory board member of the Business of Sports School (a Career and Technical Education school in Manhattan). Beyond that, he works with a number of organizations in and related to Haiti and hopes to have a lasting impact on the lives of children there, particularly through sport and education; although he frequently works with high schools and mentors student-athletes here in the U.S. as well.
