Arlan Hamilton 3: Picking Winners

Like most venture capitalists, Arlan Hamilton plans to find the next billion dollar company by pattern matching—that's when VCs look to entrepreneurs who've been successful in the past and pick founders that match those qualities. Most VCs pattern match for people like Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos, but Arlan pattern matches for something different. 

How does Arlan predict who will be successful? And does she have the runway to prove out her theory?

This is the third episode in a six-part series on Arlan Hamilton and her company, Backstage Capital.
