Zebras Unite (Zebras are real, unicorns are not! Unicorns always seem to be alone, while zebras run in packs!) is a network of founders, investors, and their friends who believe that the problems of diversity in the startup scene aren't just a representation problem, they're a system problem. We'll hear from people, from both on and off CU's campus, who have been pioneering strategies for changing culture and business models for the better. But most of all, we'll hold an open conversation about the challenges and strategies you've encountered around creating a truly inclusive startup community.
