The year 2020 had placed a national spotlight on the Black experience, and this year it’s more important than ever for successful black founders to share their experiences, insight, and advice.
Join Oppti founder Khiry Kemp in a discussion to gather thoughts, ideas, and suggestions as we prepare to organize future events for the Black Founders Initiative.
After the successful launch of our BFI last year, we’ve been able to double the number of black founders in our network. As a reminder, our initiative is to “inspire, engage and support Black Founders while educating the wider network on issues like corporate social justice, selection bias, and related best practices.”
Our event with Tiffany Dufu was well-received, and we want to continue to build on this momentum. Now more than ever, it is important for us to reconvene for a follow-up discussion about the future of the Black Founders Initiative. We want to hear from you to make sure that we’re providing support, and creating valuable experiences that maximize our impact.
Khiry Kemp, Chairperson of the Black Founders Initiative, will be moderating the session.
