About this Event

Capital Factory welcomes you to our first virtual Latinx in Tech Summit! We're dedicated to increasing diversity in the entrepreneurial and tech community while making our coworking space an inclusive environment for all.

We recently published our 2019 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report, which reflects on our work the past few years, what we're doing currently, and how we want to continue improving in the future. If you have any feedback or comments, we'd love to hear from you!


Latinx leaders, entrepreneurs, and allies in tech who support and invest in diversity and inclusion. This event is open to all!


Attendees can look forward to a keynote chat from a serial entrepreneur or investor, insightful discussion sessions, a startup showcase pitch competition, Epic Office Hours, and panels on relevant topics facing the tech ecosystem.


Consider it speed dating with entrepreneurs. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs, top figures and investors will be here for lightning round mentor sessions with YOU! Applications now open - apply today!​​​​​​​
