About this event

We're celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week (#GEW2019)! 

This month we're highlighting the #GEW2019 themes of ecosystems and inclusiveness with our special guests Slingshot Memphis!

We're hosting Slingshot Memphis this Month!

Slingshot Memphis, an organization that "aims to create a demonstrable reduction in poverty by promoting a results-driven poverty-fighting ecosystem." Poverty is a global social issue and Slingshot is focused on making sure that every dollar invested and funded is making an impact. Memphis has the 2nd highest poverty rate in the United States and a child poverty rate of 44%. Poverty impacts every aspect of life and our city, especially our startup ecosystem.

  • Utilizes data to guide investment decisions in organizations that are in the poverty-reduction ecosystem
  • Integrates donations with informed investors that is aimed at achieving powerful incomes
  • Explore public streams of revenue to leverage private investments that can invest more in new innovation, new partnerships, and new outcome support that leads to increased support.
