Arlan Hamilton’s career as a venture capitalist (VC) has given her the opportunity to bless others. This time, she’s teamed up with Adero Knott to bring her app to life, and it all began when she tagged Hamilton in an image accompanied by the headline, “Black Disabled Woman Develops App That Makes Customized Prosthetics.” Amputees Can Be Covid-Proof.”
“While conducting market research and surveys for my app idea, I decided to put myself out there and made a post on Instagram,” said Knott in a post shared to Medium. “Shortly after, Arlan DMed saying she wanted to meet me, and the rest was history.”
Speaking of history, Hamilton personally backed AK Prosthetics with not only capital but mentorship and guidance.
“I was drawn in by Adero’s passion, overwhelming talent and vision, and her grit,” said Hamilton of the inspiration behind backing Knott’s brand. “She always seems to be in forward motion. She has a mission and will not stop until her arrow hits the target.”
