Wake Up, Raise Up

He raps about the disadvantages entrepreneurs face when they don’t (or can’t) project the persona of an alpha-male in a song he exhibited as a finalist at last year’s Tronc (a.k.a. Tribune Publishing) Chicago Redeye Big Idea Awards. Citing the statistic that just 2% of all venture capital in the U.S. goes to companies founded solely by women, the lyrics rage against toxic masculinity in venture capital to the detriment of women and underrepresented groups.
