People starting new businesses in the US today are much more likely to be Black, brown, female, and older than most people realize. And yet our systems of finance and support are doing a terrible job of supporting these New Builders. Join us as Makisha Boothe - founder and Head Coach of Sistahbiz, a network for Black, female founders - and Seth Levine - co-founder and partner at Foundry Group and the co-author of the newly release book, The New Builders, talk about the changing nature of entrepreneurship in the US and urgent change is needed if we are to keep our entrepreneurial edge as a country. This session will surprise and challenge you. Most of what you think is true about the entrepreneurial landscape in the US is wrong.

Startup professionals are being confronted by a wholly different way of operating and producing value for their organizations. This new way of engaging with personal and professional reality evokes resistance which then leads to a sense of pervasive struggle.

In our discussion we will address the notion that unorthodox arenas demand unorthodox solutions. The modern professional is not a monastic and has an array of responsibilities that don't always accommodate long periods of sitting meditation.

We can explore mindfulness methods that get us from sensations associated with the ability to stay alive (fight, flight, freeze, please) to tolerating contradictory experiencing and uncertainty. Finally, we can discuss the value of the practice of unconditional kindness to the full range of our experience.
