Indigenous Communities, Immigrants, and Refugees & Impact Investing

Mar 13: 9:00-11:30 AM

Location: Marco Polo

Indigenous Communities, Immigrants, and Refugees & Impact Investing

Join us for a dialogue about social impact investment for programs serving Colorado's immigrants and refugees. An immigrant is the most likely person to start a business in the U.S., and yet only 2% of venture capital is invested in women and 1% for people of color - many of them from or working within immigrant communities. Developing a full spectrum of capital to support indigenous communities, immigrants, and refugees is essential for supporting those who are most likely to create the businesses of tomorrow. This session is a working session to identify the key city, state, and national partners to better understand both existing programs and programmatic needs and explore collaborations.
