About this event
StartOut actively seeks to empower & connect the LGBTQ+ investor community. Its overarching goal is to accelerate the economic growth of the LGBTQ+ community, building a world where every LGBTQ+ entrepreneur & investor has equal access to lead, succeed, & shape the workforce of the future.

In this panel we showcase experiences from top Emerging VC programs & to prove that folks from underrepresented communities should not be dissuaded from VC simply for being considered an "outsider."

Education & experience make the difference & these programs help burgeoning investors empower themselves to then drive meaningful economic growth.

Hear from experiences from programs such as:

500 Global VCU
VC Lab
Breaking into VC
