Integrated Capital: Financing for a New Majority
Overview: Just 2% of venture capital landed in the hands of women and minority founders. Minority's are 3x likely to be denied small business loans.

How do our systems and institutions play a role in creating greater access and unlocking risk capital for a new majority?
