One of StartOut’s main goals is to connect gay and lesbian entrepreneurs – current entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and successful entrepreneurs – in order to provide opportunities for everyone along the entrepreneurial spectrum. Our networking events are a critical part of fulfilling that goal.
Our Networking Events have a variety of formats to maximize the potential for networking. The events are held on a regular basis, and are designed to connect LGBT entrepreneurs along the lines of their mutual interests. For aspiring entrepreneurs, this means meeting others who may also be looking to build a business, or meeting those looking to build out their current business. For current entrepreneurs, this means meeting others who can provide opportunities, advice and other resources to help them build and grow their businesses. For successful entrepreneurs, this means the opportunity to use their knowledge and expertise to help young companies grow – and perhaps even take an interest in working with a startup.
