Diversity and Inclusion

Growing opportunities for all

Through a demonstrated commitment to inclusivity and diversity, the Hub aims to contribute to future prosperity and global competitiveness by training the next generation of innovators from all backgrounds.

Activities that promote diversity include building a mentor network of successful and diverse individuals throughout the startup lifecycle, ensuring that hub instructors and mentors reflect the diversity of the region, and enhancing efforts to recruit participants belonging to groups historically underrepresented in entrepreneurship.

Partner institutions and HBCU Delaware State University co-lead the hub’s efforts to establish new partnerships with minority-serving institutions.
