About this event

"It's About Damn Time"... that CMX Virtual Connect hosts Arlan Hamilton, Founder + Managing Partner at Backstage Capital. 

On July 7th, we chat with Arlan on how she built a venture capital firm, broke into the boys' club of Silicon Valley, and wrote a book about the entire journey. David Spinks will moderate this exciting talk that you won't want to miss!

Join us on the first Tuesday of the month for another CMX Connect in San Francisco. CMX Connect events are about harnessing the incredible power of community. This program fulfills the need for community professionals to come together in-person and learn, grow, and, well… Connect!
