Companies with diverse teams and boards operate better - but how to implement those changes? We're fortunate to have Board++ founder and CEO David Stengle with us to share about how to improve diversity in startups, improve performance, and change culture by diversifying your board and advisory board. We'll also talk about the changes (and lack of change) in the startup industry on diversity and inclusion.
David is a serial entrepreneur well-versed in these topics and verticals including fintech, adtech, and digital health. Prior to founding Board++, David was CEO of several companies and led technology, product, marketing, revenue, business development and strategy at a number of startups.

My latest venture, Board++ breaks glass ceilings, diversifies startup boards, and develops our next generation of leaders by placing corporate executives on startup boards. I founded the Startup Grind Princeton chapter in 2014 and live in downtown Princeton.
