Show Notes

In episode 5 of the Art of the App Podcast, my guest Brooke Harley is sharing the importance of educating yourself past college and the actionable steps you can take right now to continue your education to learn tactical and useful skills. Some of the talking points Brooke Harley and I go over in this episode include:

  • Brooke’s career journey and how it got her to where she is today. 
  • The stigma surrounding continuing education — why people look at it negatively and how we can change that perception.
  • How Class Rebel can move you ahead 10 years in only 8 hours of education. What this means for you and how you can use it to your benefit to learn unique but practical skills. 
  • What Brooke is taking from lululemon’s business strategy and applying it successfully to her own business.   
  • Brooke’s own investing requirements: what she looks for in a company to when it comes to investing. 
  • How Brooke’s company is filling a gap in our country by providing affordable and quality extended education. Class Rebel's tag line is — "Education is a peaceful protest against class inequality."

Before closing her pre-seed round for Class Rebel, Brooke Harley was an angel investor who raised $32 million for her first venture capital fund. As both an investor and a founder, she has made hundreds of pitches, heard hundreds of pitches, made all of the mistakes and eeked out a few successes.

Prior to Class Rebel, Brooke reported to the C-suite at lululemon for 6 years and prior to lululemon was a corporate attorney.

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive inspiration from founders and investors shaping the future.
