TED Talks (and so do you!) / November 25, 2020


Change Makers.  Unlocking the American Dream | Jean Case 

Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not. Case Foundation CEO Jean Case highlights the importance innovators have played in the history of the United States and examines the state of entrepreneurship today. She notes that funding, mentoring and networking that fuels entrepreneurship presently favors white men, with only 10% of venture capital going to women, and less than 1% to African Americans and most investment going to just three states. Case argues there is a tremendous opportunity to seize by expanding access to capital by investing in women and entrepreneurs of color and sets forward a clarion call for all to join in on building an inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem that would give everyone an equal chance at unlocking the American Dream.

We kindly ask all participants to watch the video before the program.

Using the TED talks as a guideline we want to address tolerance, empathy, and critical thinking while encouraging the exchange of information, opinions, and insights. This program was designed for university students and young professionals, but everyone is welcome.
