    Information about Metropolitan State University's Founders Hall building location.

Locally, nationally and globally, barriers exist for LGBTQ individuals who seek to build their own companies and organizations. Hear about the successes and failures from those who have taken the road less traveled and be inspired to continue building your current initiative or begin brainstorming your own venture.

Listen to a conversation with community leaders, Metropolitan State University alumni and current students on the intersection of entrepreneurship and identifying as LGBTQ.

Panelists will also discuss Minnesota’s strong entrepreneurial ecosystem as well as advice on building relationships, pursuing funding, and forging partnerships to help grow and expand your venture.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
