African Americans and Latinos entrepreneurs receive less than two percent of all private equity capital invested. Women entrepreneurs receive less than four percent. In this session, we'll discover viable and definitive solutions to closing the exposure, talent, technical assistance, mentorship and private equity gaps in underserved and underrepresented communities in America and beyond by creating end to end startup and technology ecosystems. We'll learn how to authentically engage with underrepresented communities for talent, startups, advisors, investors and investments. Join us as we discuss solutions in supporting leaders and experts that are building tech and startup ecosystems in their community to provide resources for aspiring entrepreneurs.
