Breaking Barriers in Tech Entrepreneurship

Connect and Learn with Diverse Startup Leaders

Entrepreneurship is tough. Add the legacy of biases in the tech industry, and the path to success for underrepresented entrepreneurs can be even tougher.  

After a networking reception to start the evening, join our diverse startup leaders for fireside chats, a founder story talk, and interactive networking opportunities.  

What You’ll Experience  

  • Fireside chat with Ruben Harris, cofounder and CEO of job training startup Career Karma, which raised a $40 million Series B round in January, and cohost of podcast Breaking Into Startups.   
  • Founder story by Shanea Leven, founder and CEO of venture-backed early-stage startup CodeSee, which helps software developers visualize their code. 
  • Fireside chat with Stephanie VanPutten, founder and former CEO, Blendoor (diversity analytics and hiring software as a service); entrepreneur in residence, Equity Alliance; founder, Visible Figures.
  • Insights from two VC moderators: Joe Hurd, global managing director at venture capital firm SOSV, and Eric McCarthy, associate at Top Tier Capital Partners. 
  • Ample networking opportunities over appetizers and drinks. 

Who Should Attend  

Founders, up-and-coming next generation leaders, established tech executives, investors, and related startup leaders and players. If you want to help foster a robust, inclusive, and diverse entrepreneurial ecosystem, this event is for you.

  • Add your energy and voice to a fun evening combining founder stories with networking.
