CHI: Early Stage Funding Challenges for Minority Entrepreneurs

Event Details

Recent protests have again brought to the fore the realities facing minority entrepreneurs. The economic slowdown and societal impact of COVID-19 have created a trifecta of challenges.

Join us for a virtual professional development session on early stage funding during these tough economic times.

Presenting for this event will be fellow Tartans who are raising, have raised or are thinking about raising funding, along with investors with a focus on minorities. During the session, ask your questions, share your stories, get tips and make suggestions for much needed structural changes.

CMU alumni stand in solidarity with our black and brown entrepreneurs and investors and will actively seek to fight racism and help create more equitable structural systems.

Tuesday, July 14
5:30 p.m. CT

Free to attend.
