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 57 annual events and over 5,200 participants nationwide, StartOut inspires, educates and supports LGBT entrepreneurs. We have chapters in Austin, Boston, New York, and San Francisco with Los Angeles 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.
