​This will be an uncommon opportunity to meet inspiring entrepreneurs and investors in our local community, whether female, black, latino, or even LGBT or native American, who all together still represent a minority of venture capital investments in the USA. Help us, help them, to change the status quo by participating in this event.

​Join us for compelling panels focused on the challenges and the solutions developed by fellow founders. Join the collaborative movement and enrich your professional network.
