Breaking Down Barriers: 3 Steps to a More Inclusive Ecosystem

Inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems don't come naturally. As barriers based on race and gender persist and impacts of COVID-19 unfold, creating a united front of support is more important than ever. If you're leading entrepreneurial programs, initiatives or partnerships, this is the session for you. The panel hosted by David Ponraj, CEO & (immigrant) founder of Startup Space, a community entrepreneurship platform, will feature leaders from the Downtown Denver Partnership, Denver Startup Week, and the University of Colorado, and we want to hear your insights to foster an ecosystem that works for everyone.
