A Note on the Female Founder Series


A Note on the Female Founders Series

Hello again Fish Sauce Family!

Quick Bites:

  • We’ve set a Season Two release date.
  • All of our episodes are now on YouTube.
  • We want to be better.

As always, we are extremely grateful for the continued support from the Fish Sauce Family and excited to share what has been happening with us!

Season Two Update:

We have set a release date!

Episode One will be available via your favorite podcast provider and our YouTube channel (more below) on Monday, November 6.

We will be releasing a new journey into the minds of successful Asian-American founders, operators and investors every other week, and can’t wait to bring another batch of Secret Sauce to our listeners.

As we ramp up to Season Two, expect more action from us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and through our Fish Sauce Family newsletter!

We’re on YouTube!

One of the many challenges of the side hustle/startup reality is the evergrowing list of things you’d “like to do”. “Have a YouTube presence,” has been on that list for a while.

One of the many rewards of the side hustle/startup reality is when a member of the team takes it upon themselves to turn “something they’d like to do” into “something they did.”

We’re excited that our episodes are now available through another outlet with high ease of shareablity. We’re even more excited to be able to organize our content catalog by job role. 

This will make us a better resource for those looking to move to tech but confused about the specifics of Entrepreneur, Investor and Operator roles, which is one of the reasons we started the podcast in the first place!

A Note on the Female Founders Series

Before we move ahead to next season, we wanted to take a look back at how our Female Founders summer series came to be and some of the lessons we will take from it moving forward.

When we first started working on what would become Season One of Fish Sauce, our primary goal was putting together a quality lineup of guests that would be comfortable sharing their stories with the two of us. It was only after the conclusion of our interviews that we realized the lack of gender diversity. 

Of the nine episodes we recorded, only one featured a female guest.

Part of the Fish Sauce mission is to give voice to an underrepresented population, and we have spoken with numerous guests about how to challenge biases, both conscious and unconscious.

That does not mean we are immune to our own.

As we began to release Season One and started receiving contacts regarding prospective Fish Sauce guests, we came together to discuss a more equitable way forward. 

Our immediate solution was to dedicate our summer season to showcasing Female Founders, so we reached out exclusively to badass female entrepreneurs.

We ended up interviewing three truly badass female leaders, and remain extremely grateful to each for sharing their unique perspective and some of the lessons they’ve learned.

From Bebe Chueh, Co-Founder of Atrium, we learned about risk in both our personal and professional worlds.

From Tenzin Seldon, Co-Founder and CEO of Kinstep, we learned to channel life’s difficulties in a positive direction.

And from Maureen Fan, Co-Founder and CEO of Baobab Studios, we learned we are privileged to be spared certain decisions.

We continue to learn everyday about who we are as both podcasters and people. As we make our way through our personal and professional journeys, we promise to adapt, improve, and listen.
