Fostering a diverse and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem is challenging. It’s overwhelming just knowing where to start. CONNECT, Hera Hub, and the Downtown San Diego Partnership are contributing to the ecosystem in unique ways.

Join us as we tackle the following questions:
  • How can we build a more inclusive ecosystem? 
  • What are the best resources for Women in business?
  • What’s working in other parts of the country?
  • How does San Diego compare to other cities?

Girls in Tech’s, Lisa Rosenfelt, moderates this a remarkable panel highlighting resources for startups. Panelists include H. Puentes (CONNECT),  Felena Hanson (Hera Hub) and Alex Waters (Downtown San Diego Partnership).
