What up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball Player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Welcome to Episode 21! Recently, I had the honor and privilege of speaking with the brave and brilliant Christina Lila Wilson of AngelHack. Christina became disillusioned by the slow pace of the American non-profit space and hungered to have a more immediate, powerful impact in some of the most troubled, violent, and impoverished environments on our planet. She discovered and joined AngelHack and now travels the world helping some of the hungriest entrepreneurs and visionaries on earth create solutions for global problems such as coexistence, financial inclusion, women’s empowerment, rare disease, road safety, and access to education. AngelHack’s synchronization of the non-profit and technology worlds has helped Christina and those she serves make the impact they crave with speed and efficiency. Listen to Christina share how she refuses to be funneled into common silos of perspective and blends people of different ages, cultures, socioeconomic strata, and other categories. Together, they build practical, effective solutions while serving with power and passion. I hope you enjoy hearing how outdated paradigms of technology, progress, and business are being transcended by “warrior souls” who use their suffering and pain to defeat hopelessness with opportunity, intelligence, and hard work. Christina journeys where Silicon Valley is often too afraid to go and brings investors with her. End your work week with this powerful episode of the Get Up Nation Podcast that is built on a foundation of resilience and passionate service!
