Twice annually, Startup Champions Network (SCN) members meet to connect, learn, and share experiences that fellow entrepreneurship ecosystem builders truly understand. SCN's Spring 2022 Summit will be hosted by Forward Cities alongside supporting hosts Social Venturers and First Flight Venture Center from April 4-6.
A very special thanks to NC IDEA as they continue to be a leader in advancing entrepreneurship in NC through grants and programs centered on providing opportunity for all entrepreneurs.
As ecosystem builders from around the nation are seeking tangible solutions to rebuild better in their local communities, Triangle, NC is the perfect backdrop for our Spring Summit’s timely theme: “Building Together: Catalyzing Regional Inclusive Prosperity.” In addition to the general Summit awesomeness, we're mixing it up this time and will explore what inclusion looks like and who is leading the work from three different lenses:
- Regional Matters: Building effective regional economic development strategies that prioritize inclusion and economic mobility
- Racial Equity: Best practices for equitable and asset-based ecosystem building strategies- with a racial equity lens
- Reimagining Tech: Creating intentional strategies to diversify the tech sector and address barriers to capital access for underrepresented demographics
