    Part 1: Close Up Radio Spotlights Gene Shaw Coaching

    in Management

    Chesapeake, VA – Gene Shaw Coaching specializes in leadership development and executive coaching, primarily in the healthcare space.
    “The definition of a strong leader is someone who knows themselves, a degree of self-understanding and an ability to accomplish objectives,” says Gene. “A strong leader is a people person. If you're only focusing on the technology or the finance or the marketing, and forgetting about the people component, you're missing a big part of what will make you successful.”
    Prior to launching Gene Shaw Coaching, Gene was a registered nurse who transitioned into hospital administration to focus on the information technology aspects of healthcare.
    As an administrator, Gene had the opportunity to work directly with leaders, department heads, emerging leaders and staff who wanted to become leaders, mentoring and developing these individuals to excel in their positions.
    “I moved into that role with a deep understanding of how healthcare is to be delivered, so I was able to really contribute to those individuals’ careers,” recalls Gene. “I really enjoyed the opportunity to help those individuals figure out where they want to go, what they want to do, and how to get there. When I retired, I thought, ‘How can I continue doing this?’”
    That was five years ago. Today, Gene is dedicated to assisting individuals to achieve personal fulfillment, professional growth, and business results through individual and organizational effectiveness. Together, Gene and his clients establish real specific objectives. These objectives not only the individual, but they also help measure success.

    Compassionate Capitalist Vernon Lee Empowering Diverse Entrepreneurial Success

    in Business

    Karen Rands, host of the Compassionate Capitalist Show, is joined by Vernon Lee, Jr., co-founder and managing partner of The Marathon Fund to talk about the shift in paradigm toward the realization that diverse founders of funded startups outperform traditional venture  backed companies led by white male founders.  The data is clear but the process for diverse founders to get funding to get started is muddy. The good news is that conversations started pre-2020 helped to shine the light on the challenges for access to capital for diverse founders that crystalized in 2020 and opened up the doors for more dedicated funding allocation in corporate equity, venture, and angel funds.  Karen & Vernon dig into the topic and discuss the elevation and availability of capital for underserved for companies from start to growth stage: past, present & future.
    Mr. Vernon Lee, Jr is a Partner and Co-Founder of The Marathon Fund, an early-stage equity fund primarily investing in high-growth innovative businesses. The fund aims to deploy capital with exceptional entrepreneurs that have been historically underrepresented (Black, LatinX, Women, Disabled, Veterans, and LGBTQ) in the institutional private capital markets. Mr Lee is also a member of the Global Impact Fund II investment committee.  Mr. Lee previously chaired the Venture Capital Access Program (VCAP), a partnership between The Marathon Foundation, Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of New York (HBSAANY), and the National Association of Investment Companies (NAIC). He is also a judge for the i.Invest National Youth Business competition and Startup Runway pitch competition.  For more information please visit:
