StartOut is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to creating great business leaders by fostering Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) entrepreneurs. Currently with 60+ annual events and a network over 12,000 strong, StartOut inspires, educates and supports LGBT entrepreneurs. We have chapters in Austin, Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles with Denver and Seattle in development.
We help create the next generation of LGBT business leaders by helping aspiring entrepreneurs start new companies, helping current entrepreneurs to grow and expand their businesses, and engaging successful entrepreneurs as role models and mentors for less established entrepreneurs. We also strive to foster LGBT leadership in the business community.
