Changing the Face of Entrepreneurship


The modern image of entrepreneurship does not reflect our diverse population. Join our panel of entrepreneurs and funders working to change the image of entrepreneurship. In this informative session, learn why diversity is essential, ways to attract more diversity in entrepreneurship, and what we can do to support underrepresented entrepreneurs and leaders. Leave with practical advice from entrepreneurs and funders to build financial and social capital, as well as ways to help increase opportunities for future entrepreneurs.
