Latinx Speaker Series – A Conversation with Latinx Venture Capitalists

August 28 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley invites you to join us for our second Latinx Speaker Series on Friday, August 28, 2020 at Rosewood in Menlo Park for a candid conversation with Latinx Venture Capitalists.

Have you ever wondered:

  • How to start a career in venture capital?
  • Do VCs invest in Latinx businesses?
  • How to connect with venture capitalists?

Come listen to a panel of Latinx venture capitalists and gain insight to what it’s like to be in their world. Whether you are a curious community member, an entrepreneur in search of funding, or an industry expert, we are coming together to celebrate the success of our Latinx community and strategize towards a better Silicon Valley.

The Latinx Speaker Series is one of the signature convening and engaging events of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley. The goal is to bring together various sectors of our Silicon Valley Latinx community, pull the curtains back, and explore how different sectors can work for and with the Latinx market in our region and beyond.
