Navigating the Health IT & Fintech Landscapes for Women of Color

November 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Connect with women of color building and investing in fintech and health IT startups

Join Kapor Capital, the Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI), and other self-identified women of color for heavy hors d’oeuvres and a panel discussion on November 7, 2017 at 6pm as we address the following questions:

  • How do you build a business in heavily regulated industries such as fintech and healthcare?
  • What are the opportunities and drawbacks of operating under the new governmental regulation?
  • What is the best way to navigate the startup ecosystem as a woman of color founder or employee in a traditionally male-dominated space?
  • We will begin our 45-minute panel discussion promptly at 6:30 pm and leave the remaining time for you to network and with other women of color in digital health and fintech.

    Current panelists include:
    Luz Urrutia, CEO of Opportunity Fund
    Cat Perez, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at HealthSherpa
    Maria Lajewski, Senior Manager at the Financial Solutions Lab

    More panelists to come!
