About the NYC Event

Culture Shifting Weekend NYC is the largest gathering of Black and Latinx VCs to solve for the inequality in this sector. To date, we've enabled over $100M to be invested in VCs that show up. This weekend offers institutional investors, social impact investors, angel investors, corporate venturers, and the investment community-at-large direct face-to-face engagement with the burgeoning Black and Hispanic venture capitalist GP community. The goal of this invite only event is to increase LP money flowing to this vast and growing ecosystem. Our 2019 event featured 285 guests, including: 60 venture capitalists and 50 investors.  

Our 2020 event will feature many established and up & coming GPs from our ecosystem, and offer an inside look at the current state of this niche asset class: what trends are emerging, what partnering models are working, and what deals are getting done.  As with all of our events, gaining first-hand knowledge of what is happening, gaining access to new investment dollars, and building direct connections in this community are guaranteed.

Our attendees have an "abundance" mentality.
That means they want to help their peers succeed by

opening doors, writing checks, or both.

ABOUT
CULTURE SHIFTING WEEKENDS

Culture Shifting Weekends is an annual invite-only bi-coastal event that takes place in Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley. These are the only events of their kind in the United States that unite over 400 accomplished Black & Latinx tech executives, entrepreneurs, investors, innovators and social impact leaders in order to enable collaborations and consummate deals.
 

Each coast has a different format; Silicon Valley is the largest gathering of Black leaders in tech, innovation and social impact to solve for the inequity in entrepreneurship, on corporate boards, in tech and in the c-suite. Silicon Alley is the largest gathering of Black and Latinx Venture Capitalists to solve for the inequality in this sector. 

 

 Culture Shifting Weekend is an annual signature event of Culture Shift Labs; a management consultancy specializing in growth and innovation through diversity and inclusion.
