The venture ecosystem severely lacks diversity in many ways, so we are working with local, regional, and national partners to help close this gap. We recognize that one of the most significant areas lacking support is for LGBT+ founders, and by working together we can make the most of our efforts. I wanted to send this invitation to the two of you personally, as a thank you, for the work you have done in the venture and diversity spaces.
VENTURE OUT will be bringing in entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, community supporters, and creatives to highlight and celebrate LGBT+ organizations making changes in venture systems throughout the country.
While the theme is showcasing innovative partnerships to lift up diversity inclusion in the venture community, it is also an effort to build bridges between innovative ecosystems in this space. The goal is not to demo or pitch, but to bring together like-minded professionals to learn about innovative projects and collaborations. VENTURE OUT is scheduled for the early evening of June 13th, 2019 in Columbus, OH and falls during the week of Columbus Pride.
The event will be held at Drive Capital and the space is greatly limited to 100 participants.
