How do you build a company when the odds are stacked against you?

You say, “Screw it, I’ll do it my way.”

That’s the advice of Nathalie Molina Niño, the latina tech powerhouse who is fired-up about outsmarting the status quo.

Nathalie launched her first tech startup at the age of 20 and is most recently the founder of BRAVA Investments, which invests in companies that deliver economic benefits to women.

On this episode of The StartupCamp Podcast, you’ll learn how Nathalie leapfrogged the obstacles in her path and how you can do the same.

As the daughter of first generation South American immigrants, Nathalie Molina Niño knows first hand what it’s like to try to build a company with obstacles stacked against her.

Nevertheless, she’s run 5 successful tech ventures to date, in addition to her own investment firm. She’s sharing the lessons of her success in her new book, Leapfrog: The New Revolution for Women Entrepreneurs.

But Nathalie’s advice is good for more than just women. For anyone who is looking to start a company against the grain–either due to their financial circumstances, their ethnic background, or the novelty of their ideas–you’ll find this conversation full of helpful advice.

Molina Niño’s big message: if they won’t let you sit at the table, build your own table.

In this episode, you’ll also discover:

  • More stories about successful female (and male) entrepreneurs who fought against the status quo (and won)
  • What vanity metrics are, and why you should avoid them in your business
  • How men can get involved to support the aspiration of the women in their lives
