Multicultural Mainstream: Reimagining Humanity and Technology

5 March - 6 March, 2021 | New York, NY, USA
Join event

About

The events of 2020 accelerated and changed the way entrepreneurs and venture capitalists think about issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Join fellow CVC members as we engage in deep, meaningful, and frank conversations that will help us reimagine the future of entrepreneurship through a more intersectional lens.


Our first annual conference will feature two days of content highlighting the many ways that intersectional experiences bring valuable new perspectives and opportunities to the innovation economy. Panel-style discussions will cover a range of relevant topics about how the startup and venture ecosystems are rapidly evolving to embrace intersectionalism in spaces like Consumer Experience, Fintech, Healthtech, and Cleantech/Sustainability.
