Serving underestimated Founders
I had the honor of volunteering with Impact Ventures for several cohorts serving BIPOC and Women enterprises
Impact Venture's Inclusive Innovation Accelerator Program is 12-week intensive technology and innovation focused program providing education, technical assistance, resources, mentorship, and access to capital for BIPOC and Women enterprises. Program runs twice a year in the Spring and Fall.
I have been able to participate in three cohorts so far including the first cohort. I was a:
Subject Matter Expert in technology: I was on call to founders that needed technology advice.
Adviser Mentor: Each cohort I was assigned a founder to mentor and support weekly during the accelerator.
Product Definition and Roadmap Workshop Mentor: We heard several startups pitches and gave them feedback to improve.
Speaker - Product Development: I was asked to be a guest speaker in one class about product development I went over several product development techniques and how to choose which one to use depending on where their company is in the Viral Assessment. Here are my slides.
