Founding a startup is never easy. Minority and women entrepreneurs in the tech industry find even more impediments in their way despite equal competence, effort, and even education. This 1-hour workshop will dive into a few of the issue facing our community: Access to both financial and social capital, finding the right advisors and mentors, and defying social expectations. You will learn some creative ways to navigate these obstacles, to ask for and get what you’ve earned (no, they aren’t just going to give it to you because you deserve it), and the importance & power in being vulnerable as well as owning your accomplishments.

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by Capital FactoryTechstarsGalvanize, and Janik Vinnakota LLP. If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
