The Venture Equity Project Podcast is a storytelling platform where we bring on the world’s most incredible entrepreneurs, forward thinking academic, nonprofits, and venture partners to talk about how we can take steps to fix the complex problem of inequity in venture. Host Weilyn Chong will help us gain insight on everything from how we can increase access to capital for underrepresented entrepreneurs and tips on getting in front of VCs and angels.

In this episode of the Venture Equity Project Podcast, Emma Joy Obanye, Managing Director of Capital Enterprise’s ‘OneTech’, sheds light on the current state of entrepreneurship and venture capital flow in the UK. Through sharing her own experience as an entrepreneur and detailing the work and programs OneTech is doing to build a more equitable future in venture, Emma gives insight into the similarities and differences between the venture space in the UK and US. Emma and host Weilyn Chong also chat about the flaws with the mainstream narrative of entrepreneurship, bootstrapping your business, and what it takes to build a board game.
