Founding an LGBT+ Non Profit

Founding an LGBT+ Non Profit


Barry Whyte


Eighteen months ago, a group of entrepreneurs in east London got together to set up an LGBT+ meet up. We called ourselves ‘Series Q’. Before we knew it, we found ourselves launching an LGBT+ non-profit with the same name. In this session, we take you through how our passion project transformed into something with a deep sense of purpose. Takeaways will include: how do you build structure without diminishing passion, how to move from cause to action and an opportunity to make new connections.
