As part of the Founder Institute’s new series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs practicing social distancing, we were pleased to welcome Elizabeth Gore of Alice on Wednesday, May 20th (4:30pm PDT) for a live, interactive webinar to learn about resources and strategies underrepresented business owners can use to thrive in the post-COVID-19 future.

COVID-19 has significantly impacted every business in some way, but the owners of small and medium-sized businesses have been affected more than most. On this live and interactive online event, we discussed the challenges, resources, and opportunities available to SMBs led by women, minority, immigrant and veteran founders with Elizabeth Gore (Co-Founder and President of Alice, Emeritus Chair of the United Nations Foundation’s Global Entrepreneurs Council, Partner of Portfolia Fund, and one of the world's "Most Creative People in Business” according to Fast Company). This helped founders learn about various resources available to small businesses to survive and thrive during these unprecedented times. 

This event was co-hosted by Alice and the Founder Institute.

Watch the full discussion with Elizabeth Gore on resources and strategies for underrepresented business owners below:
