Moving Boulders: Obstacles and Opportunities for Women and Minority Entrepreneurs

A session at Brand Camp '13 - NYC: Branding, Entrepreneurship + Technology Conference

Monday 20th May, 2013

10:55am to 11:25am (EST)

As entrepreneurship is increasingly front-and-center in the national conversation on economic growth and innovation, women-led and black-led thriving, startup success stories are also increasingly visible: Robin Chase of Zip Car, Charles Moore of Rocket Lawyer and scrappy newcomers like Startup America Members Victoria Ransom of Wildfire and Naithan Jones of AgLocal. Yet despite these achievements, we’re also bombarded with media stories about the challenges that women and minorities face, from lack of strong networks and mentors and “pattern matching” to outright gender and racial stereotyping and biases, in hiring and investment decisions.

Is diversity dead? Or just being disrupted? Kathleen Warner, Chief Operating Officer of the Startup America Partnership, will share the story of Startup America’s growing national network of vibrant, entrepreneurial ecosystems and the open and inclusive approach the Partnership takes with its Regional Champions and Startup Members to ferret out and support all high growth startups regardless of gender, race, geography and sector.
