Public Program on Tuesday, October 2 from 6 to 9 pm
On October 2, the Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative (IEI) is hosting a panel discussion titled “Creating an Inclusive Economy: Pathways for Impact Entrepreneurs.” While the benefits of diversity are well-documented, entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds continue to face persistent barriers limiting their access to networks, funding, and education. This conversation will feature inspiring founders and leaders who are developing innovative approaches to complex societal challenges and building the entrepreneurship ecosystem needed to create a more inclusive economy.
