Détails

Connected in Colour: WOC Entrepreneurs Event on July 17th is an innovative virtual panel event for women of colour (WOC) with bold ideas and a passion for building connections with like-minded innovators, entrepreneurs, and changemakers.

We know that across all sectors, Canada’s workplaces and entrepreneurial ecosystems falls short in meeting the aspirations of women of colour.

Nearly 90 percent of investment deals publicly disclosed by Canadian venture capital funds over the past five years went to companies founded exclusively by men

Together we can open more doors, make room at the table for women of colour, and accelerate ideas and solutions that support the success of WOC entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.

What to expect:

Attendees will gain invaluable advice from some of Canada’s leading WOC entrepreneurs & leaders that will equip them to meet their entrepreneurial and professional goals.

Attendees will also gain access to entrepreneurial mentorship, funding resources, training, workshops, and pitching opportunities.

This event is Canada’s first virtual event for WOC entrepreneurs & changemakers during this challenging time.
