Parker Thompson

Tech Inclusion Solution Day 65

The Tech Inclusion Conference is a tech conference that covers the entire tech industry with a focus on inclusive innovation along with diversity and inclusion in tech. Conference tracks will be curated in policy, education (K-12, STEM, Code schools), workplace and entrepreneurship categories.

For the 2016 Tech Inclusion Conference we’re planning to continue to discuss solutions for entrepreneurs on how to raise capital from investors, how accelerators are supporting startups and lesson learned as female founders. Along with two days of startup pitching during the startup showcase.

We’re also adding more content for investors or conference attendees who are interested in becoming an investor or becoming a venture capitalist. We’re excited to share Parker Thompson will lead a workshop on “How to Become A VC” at the 2016 Tech Inclusion Conference.

The workshop is open to all conference attendees and for interested attendees who would like to learn more about how to invest in startups, how to use AngelList syndicates and more. Parker will also share his pathway to become an investor.
