Last week Remotely hosted a webinar conversation to talk about the why and how to support Black and brown entrepreneurs and founders.

Joining me were three bona fide experts on the topic:

My former BlogHer co-founder, Lisa Stone, who is now a Managing Director at the VC firm WestRiver Group. Lisa published a new white paper and commentary that same week that synthesizes the VOLUMINOUS data validating that diverse founding teams (and the diverse investing teams that fund them) enjoy more profit, better financial outcomes, and better performance. 

.

.

Deldelp Medina, longtime entrepreneur and current executive director of Black and Brown Founders, which produces the annual CHROMA Conference. Deldelp shared her illuminating perspective on the delta between fundability and profitability and how it is an especially poignant comparison that Black and brown founders need to make.

.

.

James Oliver Jr., CEO of WeMontage and the founder of the ParentPreneur Foundation. James started the Foundation earlier this year despite, maybe because, of the pandemic, and it specifically targets entrepreneurs who are both Black and parents with financial, educational, and emotional support. 

.

Our conversation was rooted in the data, yes, but it grew richer with the frank examination of lived experiences behind that data. Watch the full conversation, whether to learn or to feel validated.
