Summary List PlacementFamed rags-to-riches investor Arlan Hamilton is anything but traditional. As one of the few queer black women in venture capital, Hamilton founded her firm Backstage Capital in 2015. Since then, the firm has raised more than $13.5 million and invested in about 170 startups. Now, Hamilton is opening the door to the exclusive world of venture capital by allowing anyone, accredited investor or not, to realize potential gains from Backstage Capital's portfolio of startup investments. Regular folks with at least $100 will be able to experience the same type of returns that VCs make, Hamilton tells Insider exclusively.
