As part of the Founder Institute’s series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs around the world practicing social distancing, we were pleased to welcome Mercedes Bankston, Paloma Lecheta, and Elisa Sepulveda on October 20th for this panel on Success Stories & Best Practices from Underrepresented Founders and Startup Experts.

Building a startup is always hard, but it's even harder for minority and women-owned businesses—and if you want to be successful in your startup journey, it pays to heed the advice of those who have walked a similar path, yet have achieved success against the odds. Watch this video to learn from underrepresented founders and startup experts from around the world, who share their success stories, best practices and the pitfalls to avoid, to help put you on your path to startup success.
