"I think we underestimate how important it is just to have your spirits lifted and to have hope, and that's an intangible takeaway from the conference." – Charron Leeper

What is the future of Cleveland? And who will have access to contribute to its growth? It's clear the city is emerging as a tech hub, and rapidly growing its network of startup businesses and entrepreneurs. Yet, equitable access to capital and growth opportunities continues to lag, particularly in BIPOC communities, highlighting deficits in the tech and startup ecosystem. It begs us to ask what can be done differently to leverage the talent, grit, and passion of the next generation of all of Cleveland.

FutureLAND believes taking a home-grown approach should be part of the solution. They view their work as not just a conference, but a movement driven by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. They aim to make Cleveland a leading destination for founders of color looking to build their startups in an environment where they can thrive.

Join us at the Happy Dog in Cleveland's Gordon Square neighborhood as we hear how to transform Cleveland’s innovation and tech ecosystem, and together, build Cleveland’s future.
