Announcing the DivInc Fall 2019 Cohort, Sponsored by JPMorgan Chase

DivInc is about broadening the startup ecosystem by making it more authentically diverse, equitable and inclusive of underrepresented entrepreneurs. When we, as a community, do this successfully, we optimize our opportunities for economic GDP growth, we can help reduce racial/ gender wealth divide, and drive greater innovation.

At DivInc, we believe diversity and inclusion drives innovation. And that’s why we’re proud to announce our largest cohort yet!
