About this event

Have you heard? October is Black Leaders Month at Startup Grind, which means we are highlighting and celebrating powerful Black leaders all across the globe!

The Hollywood chapter is excited to co-host 7 incredible Black leaders with the Bay Area chapter this month.

Join us for our first ever virtual mini conference where we've programed 4 sessions ranging from fundraising and creating meaningful entrepreneurial communities, to building powerful personal + professional brands. We'll hear from people like Everette Taylor, the CMO at Artsy and Jewel Burks Solomon, the Head of Google for Startups.

In addition to top-notch content, there'll be opportunities to pop in to networking sessions, live chat with other entrepreneurs, learn about Google's Fund Black Founders initiative, and much more.

We hope you'll stay for all the sessions, but check out the agenda and decide what suits you.

See you then!
