Former collegiate golfer, investment banker, and Uber leader turned women's apparel co-founder Jane Dong joins Jerry on Episode 088 to share her journey of overcoming odds and obstacles on her way to finding in Frankly what she had sought all her life: a company and product worth building in her own authentic vision.

We celebrate Jane's success in academics, athletics, and career and all that she has achieved.
We support her business Frankly Apparel and her fellow Asian American entrepreneurs building companies our way.
We are inspired by her taking her experience and gifts and putting them to make the world a better place.
Meet Jane in her own words!
"I grew up in Fremont, CA, and I achieved in the way that my Chinese immigrant parents have wanted. I'm now moving away from this, starting a women's apparel company focused on eliminating bras (Frankly) after graduating from Stanford GSB. Before Stanford, I was a DI golfer at Columbia and worked in more risk-averse industries like Investment Banking at Goldman and in operations at Uber. I've spent a lot of my life trying to collect gold stars, and though my stress is different now bootstrapping my own company, I feel more free than I did chasing brand names. I know how important representation and access is, and I will continue to be proud of my Asian-American heritage in circles where I'm the minority as well as speak up for those who aren't present."
