Non-binary is a term associated with gender identity, but it also means "not relating to, composed of, or involving just two things." Gender is a spectrum and so are the modalities for engaging in commerce globally in 2023 and beyond. You can be a community-rooted business and fight the evils of late-stage capitalism, anti-Black business practices, transphobic work culture, and more.
On this intersectional podcast, DCAP MEDIA founder & queer trans non-binary latinx entrepreneur Daniela "Dani" Capistrano (They/Them) applies a non-binary & activist lens to startup ecosystems, unpacking the ways that transgender and cisgender founders innovate and collaborate to help change the world.
This podcast unapologetically centers the voices of trans & gender nonconforming (TGNC) entrepreneurs, emerging business owners, and activists. We connect movement workers, business owners, and other partners to support real change in the world. We also feature cisgender allies who collaborate with trans people.
As DCAP MEDIA, Dani is an alum of the inaugural Nike Academy for diverse suppliers in 2022, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, the digitalundivided BREAKTHROUGH program, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Emerging Leaders Program, the Go.Be. Level Up! program, and the Fund 17 Be The Boss Accelerator program.
Dani identifies as a queer & trans non-binary latinx storyteller, LGBTQ+ activist, entrepreneur, co-parent, survivor of childhood & adulthood sexual abuse and domestic abuse trauma, economic justice advocate, Fund 17 board member, and founder & chief curator of POC Zine Project. They did not go to business school and do not come from generational wealth.
This podcast is their experiment documenting their journey as queer & trans activist who is also a business owner, while sharing resources with others through the podcast, newsletter, website content, free & sliding scale educational products & services, and co-branded programming with a diverse range of partners (launching Fall 2023).
Dani is building this community platform in public and will add a news & resources section to this website in Summer 2023.
Each season of this podcast (and some bonus content!) will be created in collaboration with listeners who provide feedback. Return to this website starting January 20, 2023, for more information and to access the podcast release schedule.
This podcast is also an archive of Dani's own journey as they live as an out queer & trans non-binary latinx person while achieving generational wealth for their child and family at large.
Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey, you'll find a safe & welcoming space in the Non-Binary Entrepreneurship with Daniela Capistrano community to listen, learn, and grow. See you in 2023! Subscribe to the podcast on Spotify and to the newsletter for alerts.
