Boulder Start Up Week – Diversity Is The Answer: After The Accelerator
May 15, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am
The data is in: diversity provides a strategic business advantage.
As companies leave accelerators, they often experience a let-down.
No more are they surrounded by mentors, investors, and peers who are driving towards short-term goals.
By putting themselves in environments full of people of diverse backgrounds, they can gain the long-term perspective needed to build a company over longer cycles.
We explore how diverse professional communities support the ongoing development of business, and how to cultivate advisors, friends, colleagues and staff from broad backgrounds to help support your company’s adolescence.
