If you’re an associate or partner at an established venture firm and you want an advantage in a crowded space, get in touch with me. Every one of you should have in-house scouts searching for the black Zuck or the Hispanic Elizabeth Holmes. And those scouts need to be of color. And very smart and intuitive. And not white dudes who happen to have a lot of black friends and play basketball. Seriously. Right now. Email me. ARLANHamilton@gmail.com …invite me to your office or bowling or to a concert or out for sushi and let’s talk about it.
