Welcome to the first-ever episode of the brand new podcast series, The Pathfinders, brought to you by Ansarada! This is a show dedicated to dealmakers, rainmakers and trail blazers, where we tap into the stories of modern dealmakers who are carving paths forward.

Join former NFL player, investor, and entrepreneur Dhani Jones as he speaks with different guests each week and unveils the challenges, the mess-ups and the lessons learned on the path to success.

For our very first episode, Dhani speaks with Jennifer Deason, the Chairman and CEO of Belong Acquisition Corp and former Executive Vice President of Bain Capital. She is here today to discuss her insights into what makes a successful deal, what to do when a deal goes wrong, what the risks are and what you can do to mitigate them.

Jennifer dives into the process of running a $150 million NASDAQ Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) for Belong Acquisition Corp and discusses the lessons learned while taking on the venture. She also explores how technology and economics have evolved and changed since her days working as a Deutsche Bank analyst, and how technology is disrupting dealmaking and legacy practices today.

Hear first-hand some of Jennifer’s career highlights and learn how she has built such a triumphant career while also being a mother. This is a first episode you do not want to miss! Sit back, relax, hit play, and enjoy the brand-new premier episode of The Pathfinders, presented by Ansarada!
