Venture Out

VENTURE OUT will be bringing in entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, community supporters, and creatives to highlight and celebrate LGBT+ organizations making changes in venture systems throughout the country.

While the theme is showcasing innovative partnerships to lift up diversity inclusion in the venture community, it is also an effort to build bridges between innovative ecosystems in this space. The goal is not to demo or pitch, but to bring together like-minded professionals to learn about innovative projects and collaborations. VENTURE OUT is scheduled for the early evening of June 13th, 2019 in Columbus, OH and falls during the week of Columbus Pride.
