Earlier this week, the Blackstone Charitable Foundation partnered with the Case Foundation, Google for Entrepreneurs, and UBS to announce a new initiative,#FacesofFounders, to promote inclusive entrepreneurship. The campaign, which debuted at the White House’s first ever South by South Lawn (SXSL) event, is shining a spotlight on the great talent and innovations coming from this largely-untapped segment of the startup community. The campaign aims to support all of the nation’s entrepreneurs – from all places, all races, all genders – and to share their stories. Read the Forbes article “Here Is What Entrepreneurs Really Look Like” highlighting #FacesofFounders here to learn more.
Please join the campaign and share your story in support of inclusive entrepreneurship here! Submissions are due by November 22, 2016. Five of the founders who submit their stories will have the opportunity to be profiled in a sponsored story on FastCompany.com.
