Thanks to donor support, we launched a new program in May 2018, the Simon Initiative, focused on developing a distinctive ecosystem of women and minority entrepreneurs, advisors, mentors and investors. The initiative’s flagship event is HER Summit: Helping Entrepreneurs Rise. HER Summit is a day all about community-building and empowerment amongst female and minority entrepreneurs, helping them rise above gender and cultural norms as they build their dream empires.
