Be Connected: QTNA - Entrepreneurship in Black & Latinx Communities

When: Tue, Jul 18
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, Free

How best can we support the entrepreneurial needs of the Black & Latinx communities? Join us for a session of  Questions That Need Answers in collaboration with American Underground and Google’s CODE2040.

American Underground is working to bring together and support Black and Latinx founders with high growth, scaleable companies. They host a monthly speaker series called Questions That Need Answers (QTNA), in partnership with the San Francisco-based nonprofit, Code2040. At a normal QTNA talk, attendees come with questions around a specific topic, and a thought leader with expertise on that topic provides immediate feedback to help attendees with their businesses and ideas.

For this QTNA, American Underground wants to flip the format and ask YOU the questions! As they seek to expand programming and resources for Black and Latinx entrepreneurs with tech and consumer product startups, they want YOUR input on what would be most helpful! Panelists are: Tarryn Henry, Phillipe Charles, and Doug Speight.

What does success look like for your company? What are some barriers you’ve run into? What do you wish you would have known when you started your company? What resources do you wish you had then, or could use now? Come prepared to answer! Your input can help influence the future of Black entrepreneurship in Durham.

IMPORTANT TICKET NOTE: This event is free and open to the public. However, space is limited, so please get there early!!

Beyu’ s Be Connected program, your community connection to the latest issues in the arts, culture, music and politics is produced by Angel Dozier with new season Be Connected host, Pierce Freelon.
