WOMEN OF DSW | Build the Damn Thing with Kathryn Finney

Through her venture fund, thirty-plus angel investments, and mentorship of entrepreneurs, Kathryn Finney is fostering economic, financial, and social opportunities for Black owned-businesses across the United States. Named one of the most influential women in tech, Kathryn is the founding Managing Partner of Genius Guild. The Chicago-based venture fund invests in bold high-growth startups led by BIPOC founders that use the social determinants of health (SDOH) framework to build market driven solutions that disrupt the $4.3 trillion health care industry.

Join us to hear from Kathryn as she shares her entrepreneurship journey and gives guidance from her Wall Street Journal bestseller's list book, Build The Damn Thing: How to Start a Successful Business if You're Not a Rich White Guy. The book offers a hard-won, battle-tested guide to help every entrepreneur succeed. Kathryn will also share her work as an inclusion champion, and investor to encourage Black founders and women entrepreneurs to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. You cannot miss Kathryn Finney at Denver Startup Week!

Special thanks to TARRA and the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce for their support in bringing Kathryn to Denver.

Thank you to our Women of DSW sponsor, Contentful.
