This group is the premier community for Women and Black, LatinX, Asian, LGBTQ, or other underrepresented tech entrepreneurs in Austin. This community is open to founders and those interested in supporting founders (mentors, advisors, investors, VCs, entrepreneurship experts, incubators, technical companies, etc). Soon to be tech entrepreneurs are welcome.
While there exist plenty of agencies, accelerators, incubators, academic programs, and VC communities in Austin, they are disjoint and don't provide structure around mutual benefit and support. This community will bridge that gap by providing the framework of support, be a central hub for information and resources across the entrepreneurship canvas, and promote open communication within the community without biasing toward any organization's singular interest. The goal of this community to be the meta community of entrepreneurship players, one where each member of the community is equally invested in the success of the others.
Through this meetup, we will establish Austin, TX as THE BEST PLACE IN AMERICA for Women and underrepresented tech entrepreneurs to THRIVE!
You should join this meetup if you are an underrepresented tech entrepreneur (at any stage, startup, pre-startup, established, etc), or if you have resources to support the growth and cultivation of current and future entrepreneurship endeavors (investors/VCs, startup resource providers, advisors/mentors, and entrepreneurship experts) in Austin.
The Austin Premier Tech Entrepreneurship Community is primarily about getting people in the same place who can help or support one another with a focus on accountability.
In this first event, we'll be spending some time mingling, but we will ultimately look to provide you with a framework for successful goal setting and accountability with the hopes that you leave with new tools to sustain your progress against your goals. This event is both a casual mixer and an informal workshop.
Arrive willing to speak to and hear from people who are passionate members of the Austin Premier Tech Entrepreneurship Community.
