PACT Foundation Breakfast: Diversity, Inclusion & the Innovation Blind Spot

  • SugarHouse Event Center 1001 North Delaware Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19125 United States (map)

Hosted by Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT)

This year's event theme will focus on recognizing and overcoming bias in funding, hiring, and education as we work toward a more inclusive tech community. Our keynote speaker will be Ross Baird, Founder & President of Village Capital and author of "The Innovation Blind Spot: Why We Back the Wrong Ideas - and What to Do About It."

The PACT Foundation works to provide financial support to STEM-based community initiatives and to underrepresented groups in high-growth technology and life science entrepreneurship. Portions of the proceeds will go directly to local computer science education initiatives.
