Another chance to participate in TechCrunch Include Office Hours is here. On March 18th, Santi Subotovsky and Alison Wagonfeld of Emergence Capital will join TechCrunch editors to provide advice and feedback to startups.
Launched in 2014, Include is TechCrunch’s diversity program, aimed at facilitating opportunities for underrepresented groups in tech to take their startups to the next level.
Office hours are part of that effort. Once monthly, TechCrunch works with its VC partners to ensure that founders of all backgrounds have an opportunity to build connections with top investors. To be considered for a meeting in the Emergence Capital session fill out a short application, by Wednesday, March 9 at 6 p.m. PT.
Underrepresented groups eligible for office hours include but are not limited to black, Latino, Native American, LGBT and female founders. Office hours will be held at TechCrunch’s offices in San Francisco unless otherwise specified.
