#55: Coaching and Social Entrepreneurship with Dr. Omolara Uwemedimo
On this episode, our season 4 finale, we’re talking about professional coaching and entrepreneurship. What do these entail? How is a coach different from a therapist or a mentor? And how can you figure out if coaching is just what you need? We’re talking to an expert today who tells us all that and more.
Omolara Thomas Uwemedimo, MD, MPH is a serial entrepreneur, business development coach, and funding strategist for women of color in healthcare. She has been a pediatrician for over 15 years and a researcher and professor for over a decade, while growing two companies to over six figures in revenue in less than 18 months. She then went on to found Melanin & Medicine, a premier business development and funding coaching company, which helps women of color in medicine secure capital without incurring debt or diluting equity in order to build and grow their own healthcare businesses committed to social impact. Her work has been featured in several media outlets including People.com, NBC News, Medscape, Reuters, and NPR. Dr. Uwemedimo lives in Long Island, NY with her husband and two daughters.
