Investors Looking for Diverse Startups to Fund

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most angel investors, venture capitalists and private equity funds suggest they can't find access to viable and fundable minority and women owned startups, early stage or growth stage companies. In contract, minority and women-owned founders and cofounders suggest they aren't able to obtain angel investment or private equity funding. In fact, less than two percent of all venture capital goes to black and brown startups. Less than four percent to women. During this interactive and candid conversation on how to close this private equity chasm, active investors will learn how to connect with minority and women owned companies. Minority and women owned companies will learn how to connect with investors and how to best position themselves for navigating the investment ecosystem.
