You'll hear from a seasoned investor focused on women-led companies and a founder building a high-growth, inclusive tech startup. They'll challenge antiquated and biased investor norms and discuss how diverse teams build businesses that have 41% higher returns and exit one year faster, leading to bigger payouts for both historically underestimated founders and their inclusive investors. Founders, join and learn how to fundraise effectively by partnering with savvy investors to build companies that consistently deliver higher revenue, better outcomes, and superior ROIs. Investors, join and learn the secrets of building a more diverse pipeline and how to provide real value.
