Inclusive Innovation Summit
Start Date: 4/13/2018Start Time: 8:30 AM
End Date: 4/13/2018End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Inclusive innovation is the idea that technology innovation should be as diverse as our nation – everyone can and should participate! However, the latest data tells us that women- and minority-led firms are receiving 2.2% and less than 3% of the venture capital for early stage firms, respectively. How do we change this dynamic? What are the challenges and opportunities for funding startups founded by minorities and women?

This Summit will bring experts and practitioners together to answers these questions and discuss the importance of inclusive innovation for our national economic development. Entrepreneurs, investors, and supporters of diversity, are encouraged to attend the Summit.

The Silicon Valley Center for Entrepreneurship (SVCE) at San Jose State has partnered with The Center for Urban Entrepreneurship & Economic Development (CUEED) of Rutgers University to present this event. This event is sponsored by the U.S. Minority Business Development Agency as part of the Pipeline to Inclusive Innovation (www.CUEEDPII.com).
