Latinx Launchpad—Latinas who Lead: a Pitch Competition hosted by Hispanics in Philanthropy

Latina Founders receive <0.4% of VC investments. Join us to reject those odds by amplifying and supporting more Latina leaders. This interactive session will spotlight talented investment-ready female founders who will pitch their startups and receive feedback, encouragement and coaching from you (the audience) and an incredible expert panel. The top 3 and an audience favorite will receive cash awards. Come listen, learn and engage as we ignite a new startup economy.

Recordings are available for paid event attendees only.
