Technology has the power to transform lives and society, but not when it is led by one group and not when it serves the needs of few.
We need to create a #NewPattern, through collaboration and inspiration, that promotes an inclusive tech industry as well as innovations that serve a greater variety of people.
#NewPattern is a movement that seeks to promote and celebrate founders from various backgrounds and mission-driven startups to change the narrative that diverse founders can and do create hugely successful tech companies and companies that seek to serve the needs of a greater variety of people are tremendous opportunities for economic growth and investment.
In addition, there are many wonderful groups and organizations working toward creating greater opportunities for tech entrepreneurs that are women, minorities, immigrants, based in rising tech hubs, and from other overlooked groups. We seek to build a coalition of organizations to spur wider and more robust networks, better leverage our resources, and share learning since we are all working toward the same end goal: a more diverse and inclusive tech industry
What We Do
Changing the Narrative
Mainstream media fails to consitently cover more diverse tech founders and enterprises, so we will because there are many wonderful innovators out there that need to be recognized and whose journey must be shared to inspire the next generation of tech entrepreneurs.
Most importantly, we seek to build community among diverse founders, allies, and supporters. We bring together multiple partner organizations that co-lead a monthly event to convene tech entrepreneurs, thought leaders, investors, mentors, and ecosystem leaders in a hands-on and collaborative format. These monthly events are meant to help build ties and empower the next generation of founders from varied backgrounds and geographies to succeed.
