Lesbian Entrepreneur Mentoring Program
In keeping with StartOut’s commitment to create wealth and opportunity in the LGBT community by supporting entrepreneurs, we’re thrilled to offer the first-ever Lesbian Entrepreneur Mentoring Program.
About The Program
StartOut’s Lesbian Entrepreneur Mentoring Program pairs new lesbian entrepreneurs with seasoned entrepreneurs, investors and senior level executives; in order to provide advice, resources and knowledge to help grow young businesses.
In speaking with lesbian entrepreneurs, it became clear that mentoring was high on the list of needs, and a simple way to provide immediate value to lesbians in the StartOut community.
If conventional wisdom dictates that startup success yields experience, money and connections; and it follows logically that experience, money and connections gets you a seat at the Tables of Influence (boards, VCs, etc.), then the first step is to do whatever we can to help women in startups be more successful, faster.
