We are looking forward to discuss and work with practitioners, i.e. startup founders and their supporters, investors, corporates and other facilitators, with an interest in the overall conference topic. You may share your experiences during the Diversity Talks, learn from other speakers and/or contribute to research projects that are kickstarted at Day 2 of the conference. How? Collaborate with scholars in the field of entrepreneurial diversity by raising awareness of current practical issues in this regard and/or provide access to interesting data sources (case studies, reports etc.) that might help fostering our understanding and developing solutions to persisting challenges.
