04. Wake Up, Raise Up
He raps about the disadvantages entrepreneurs face when they don’t (or can’t) project the persona of an alpha-male in a song he exhibited as a finalist at last year's Tronc (a.k.a. Tribune Publishing) Chicago Redeye Big Idea Awards. Citing the statistic that just 2% of all venture capital in the U.S. goes to companies founded solely by women, the lyrics rage against toxic masculinity in venture capital to the detriment of women and underrepresented groups.
In 2018, RajNATION was awarded the Selfless Service Award from Bunker Labs
Thanks for providing such awesome content -- there are so many dud speakers out there and I was blown away by not only how much fun I had watching your preso, but also how much we learned. My SDRs actually mentioned to me that they have actionable takeaways that they can put into place today!

For a lot of educational based talks people tend to zone in and out. You can see that when attendees are checking email, looking at their phone, or simply not engaged. That did not happen with your session. People were taking notes, responding to feedback, and clearly connecting with the material.

Our company worked with Raj to develop 3 different types of pitches: to business and brands, to creators and influencers, and to general public and investors. They are really different segments and Raj had the ability to pull out different concepts to develop them into super clear messaging. Muses raised $1.2 million seed!
