Creating an Inclusive Economy: Pathways for Impact Entrepreneurs
Monday, October 2, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Arnhold Hall, Theresa Lang Center, 2nd Floor 55 West 13th Street
This event will explore innovative strategies for creating a more inclusive economy by supporting impact entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds who are transforming complex challenges into opportunities. While the benefits of diversity are well-documented, entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds continue to face persistent barriers limiting their access to social, intellectual, and financial capital.
Speakers will include entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds who are creating positive impact in myriad ways, as well as leaders endeavoring to build a more inclusive entrepreneurship ecosystem. The event is organized in conjunction with the launch of The New School’s Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative and is generously supported by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
