TechCrunch Include Office Hours are back and will take place in New York on January 25th from 3-5 p.m. Betaworks partner Matt Hartman will be hosting private feedback sessions for startups. For a chance to participate, apply here.
In 2014 TechCrunch started Include, our diversity program designed to provide opportunities for underrepresented groups in tech to gain access to networks, investors, and resources.
Each month, TC partners with a VC firm to host Office Hours to help founders build their networks and get solid advice from experienced investors.
Underrepresented groups in tech include, but are not limited to, females, African-Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, veterans, LGBTQ, and persons with disabilities.
