Ventures and The Riveter are hosting a happy hour and panel discussion with LGBTQ+ founders on how they built their businesses on June 25th.
"I worked in the industry for several years as a mechanic and hated what I saw. People were taken advantage of and lied to...I loved fixing cars but couldn’t stay in an industry with this landscape so I quit…and started daydreaming about how I could do it better."
Ventures’ secret recipe for success: “A pinch of passion and brilliant idea, a teaspoon of training, 3 tablespoons of coaching, 2 ½ cups of incubation and 4 bags of capital.”
Meet this year's InnoVentures Judges and learn why they decided to volunteer their time.
