This year’s SEED gathering will focus around three intersecting themes that have been co-created through dozens of interviews with fellow practitioners about the gaps and opportunities in the ecosystem.
Cracking Code on Scale –
How can we sustainably scale seed stage funding and support when it tends to be right sized in the ‘artisanal’ end of the spectrum?
Centering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion –
How can we ensure equitable access to funding and support for under-resourced entrepreneurs who identify as women and people of color?
Alternative Financing Structures –
What models are being developed beyond traditional venture capital equity? How can we develop options across the returns continuum?
