Have you ever considered how the worlds of burlesque and business can complement each other? Paulina Tenner has! She is a serial entrepreneur, investor, keynote speaker, writer, and burlesque performer. We discussed Paulina’s novel Holacracy based organisation, GrantTree, which has arranged over £200m in equity-free R&D funding from the government, to help SMEs. We also talked about the highs and lows of investing in small tech businesses.

In this fascinating interview you will hear:

  • Insights into how a ‘no bosses’ culture can help a business thrive.
  • How allowing staff to curate their own career unlocks true potential.
  • The benefits of having a completely transparent, open culture, where staff set their own salaries.
  • The highs and lows of investing in small tech businesses.
  • How a burlesque persona and a business persona can complement each other.
