True equality comes with economic prosperity. This is a replay of Karen's historic, informative, and popular look at The Black Lives Economic Story - Past Present & Future PT 1.  The Compassionate Capitalist Podcast will explore the history of black enterprise, and government policies intended to aid in economic prosperity, and the racist practices that created barriers and obstacles to African American prosperity so that wealth and education gap which exists today has its roots dating back to the late 1800.  History shows time and time again how naive, well intentioned white people, in the spirit of compromise, released authority and control to other white people that had a sole intent to harm and hinder black people from achieving equality - socially and economically. There are many examples of progress being made and initiatives seeking to grow black entrepreneurship, wealth creation, and reinvestment into the communities that have been neglected and abandoned.   As we look forward with these new sources of funding and entrepreneur development, we must also look back to see how to fix the fissure that over a 100 years of systemic racism has caused in our communities.  If you are opposed to giving hand outs, then give a hand up.  Work to get the loopholes that enable racists to harm and prevent the success and empowerment of people of color out of our financial, judicial, and legislative systems.

Before the rules of REG CF were released, many companies would say they were raising capital through 'crowdfunding'.  Often they were not doing under the proper regulations offered through the JOBS Act or the SEC or their own state's securities regulations.  And, as capital formation methods of REG A+ become more popular, companies may cut corners in what they  say and do, without having the proper paperwork in place.   This puts investors' capital at risk. There could be legal and financial repercussions when a company 'says' they are crowdfunding their capital raise but they aren't doing it within the regulations.  Inside Secret #43 addresses this and in this video/podcast, Karen explains it in more detail.  As 12th and final inside look explanation of a few of the 44 secrets Karen hared shared in her best selling financial how-to book for those savvy investors that want to get started or get better at investing in entrepreneurs:  Inside Secrets to Angel Investing - Step-by-Step Strategies to Leverage Private Equity Investment for Passive Wealth Creation.

In this 6th episode of The Compassionate Capitalist Show, Karen explains Inside Secret #17 and offers her insights on the importance of ensuring the founders and team have a realistic forecast on revenue and business strategy so they know how much money they need to achieve their objectives.

Karen Rands, host of the Compassionate Capitalist Show, is joined by Vernon Lee, Jr., co-founder and managing partner of The Marathon Fund to talk about the shift in paradigm toward the realization that diverse founders of funded startups outperform traditional venture  backed companies led by white male founders.  The data is clear but the process for diverse founders to get funding to get started is muddy. The good news is that conversations started pre-2020 helped to shine the light on the challenges for access to capital for diverse founders that crystalized in 2020 and opened up the doors for more dedicated funding allocation in corporate equity, venture, and angel funds.  Karen & Vernon dig into the topic and discuss the elevation and availability of capital for underserved for companies from start to growth stage: past, present & future. Mr. Vernon Lee, Jr is a Partner and Co-Founder of The Marathon Fund, an early-stage equity fund primarily investing in high-growth innovative businesses.

One of the Inside Secrets of the Wealthy, true Compassionate Capitalists, is this notion of a 'family office'.  Family offices differ from a high networth individual who hires professional service providers with multiple clients, to advise them about investment, tax and legal matters.
