The Black & Latinx Founders Forum | #dealflow Roundtable | Gen Z VCs, BLCK VC, Latinx VC, VCFamilia
Part of the Gen Z VC Collective, The #dealflow Roundtable (DFRt) Series is a place for aspiring (and established) founders, investors, technologists, and everyone in between to come together and share ideas, spark connections, and make deals.
While every Roundtable is designed to be as inclusive as possible, we want to use this edition to center, celebrate, and support the amazing Black & Latinx founders who are breaking barriers and making big things happen. So, we are incredibly excited to present the Gen Z VC DFRt Black & Latinx Founders Forum, with guest hosts Timi Dayo-Kayode & Abubakarr Jalloh, and in collaboration with BLCK VC, Latinx VC, and VCFamilia.
We can't wait to leverage the DFRt platform to help amplify these amazing voices.
In the name of productive, community-driven dialogue, this edition of the Roundtable will provide a unique platform for founders and investors alike with a focus on two main areas:
1) VC Panel | ~40 minutes | moderated by Camden McRae (BLCK VC) and Cheryl Campos (VCFamilia), this panel will feature up-and-coming VCs telling their venture stories and discussing work being done to empower the community
2) Pitch+ ("Pitch Plus") | ~40 minutes | a DFRt staple, four founders will take the main stage to pitch, learn, connect, and make deals
Mark your calendars for great people, conversation, and opportunity.
