Through a panel titled “Founders & Funders”, they will get a chance to hear from industry leaders & funders who are creating pathways and access to funding opportunities to support upcoming entrepreneurs. They will also have the opportunity to network directly with these exceptional leaders and startup founders and gain insight into how they can apply to be in our next cohort.
