Rooted in the practices of “activist entrepreneurs” from Atlanta, North Carolina and around the US, we will explore questions such as: Are venture capital, social enterprise and innovation hubs viable strategies to disrupt structural racism? How can business be used to dismantle interlocking systems of oppression? What are some examples? What is working? What are we learning from our challenges? And finally, can the master’s tools really ever dismantle the master’s house? Come ready to explore these questions and more in this interactive, practice-focused, provocative session of racial change agents who grapple with these questions on a daily basis.
