FOCUSED ON UNDERREPRESENTED FOUNDERS
As someone who grew up poor and is a Black/Native American Latino I know firsthand the challenges that underrepresented founders face. I remember what it was like to be literally hungry, followed around in stores, and be underestimated by professors.
These experiences have shaped me into who I am today and whom I support.
My obligation is to be a champion for underrepresented founders and fight for diversity, equity and inclusion.
I believe that if we are dedicated to bridging knowledge, social capital and funding gaps we will create more fair and equitable startup ecosystems. Through this we can solve issues relating to and create wealth for all regardless of background.
