About this event


Through our Startup Grind event series Hunting for Silver Linings, we check in with ecosystem builders, investors, and business leaders from around the world.

We dig for deeper context around challenges and opportunities found in markets around the world, as well as mine for insight that can better inform biases about regions, their talent, and potential for investment.

Then, we connect the dots.

HINRI's mission is "To connect social entrepreneurs and innovative organizations to sources of capital, strategic partners, technology solutions and servant leaders so they are more effective at saving lives, saving money and having a sustainable impact."

What they do:
