Get inspired, gain actionable skills, and grow community in a conference to build momentum for more diversity in entrepreneurship.

Main content start

We're back together, in person

Join us in person for Building Momentum 2023. Hear about unique challenges and opportunities faced by founders from underrepresented communities and get inspired on ways to encourage more diversity in entrepreneurship.


Understanding the state of diversity in entrepreneurship may highlight where the challenges remain, and opportunities exist to work towards more diversity in entrepreneurship. We take a look at some of the data. 

Who Should Attend

This conference is equal parts inspiration and education, practical knowledge and tactical skills, powerful networking and community building. We invite those ready to share, support, and connect with peers and inspire and accelerate diversity in entrepreneurship.

Aspiring and active founders from all communities historically underrepresented among entrepreneurs, such as those from the Black, Latinx, Indigenous, LGBTQ communities, and women founders, investors, ecosystem builders, and all allies in entrepreneurship are welcome.

The conference is sponsored by the Stanford GSB Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, which works to prepare effective, insightful entrepreneurial leaders and to enhance knowledge about entrepreneurship and innovation.
