StartOut is excited to present the 3rd Annual StartOut Equity Summit, a virtual event that will focus on ways for underrepresented entrepreneurs to thrive across geographies and industries regardless of their background.

The Summit is envisioned as an environment for dialogue and action where every participant is prepared to share insights, reflect on experiences, and be prepared to pose new questions and reframe old answers.

This Summit aspires to be dynamic, exploratory, and honest. We work to understand lived experiences, while shifting the conversations forward towards actionable initiatives.

The Equity Summit's programming will begin at 8:00am PDT / 11:00am EDT and will end by 2:00pm PDT / 5:00pm EDT, with networking opportunities immediately following.
