Investing in Women with Sophia Bush and Nia Batts


Episode Summary

“Forty two percent of small businesses are founded by women, but women are only accessing around 6% of lending capital,” says Sophia Bush, actor and entrepreneur. As an angel investor, she is changing that with friend Nia Batts, previously one of the youngest executives at Viacom.

The cover stars on the current issue of SUCCESS magazine are investing in women, especially those with less privilege and access. They are now advisors for First Women’s Bank – the first women-founded, owned, and run bank in the US. They talk with Erin about being underestimated, changing who has the power and resources, becoming more capital efficient, and understanding as a small business owner how to access loans and funding.
