Creating Diversity in the Startup Ecosystem: Panel Discussion & Networking

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
There is an obvious lack of diversity in the startup ecosystem. If you think of all the major unicorns, very few of them have been founded by female entrepreneurs. The question we must continue to ask is why. Lucey Fund is opening up a panel discussion with local investors and local startup community organizers in DC to shine a light on the issue and discuss possible solutions for the future. Come along and join the discussion!

Event Schedule:
  • 8:00AM — 8:30AM Gathering & Chit chat 
  • 8:30 AM — 9:30AM Panel Discussion
  • Q&A 9:30 AM — 10:00 AM Networking
