The Table Stakes event will center on a discussion of the 2020 Table Stakes report and the state of fair equity practices – what’s working, what’s not, and what needs to be done next. The virtual event convenes the brightest minds in investing, entrepreneurship, and policy to discuss actionable solutions to drive more equitable equity distribution. The event will include both main stage keynotes and breakout panels focused on investors, founders, policy & legislation, and equity education.
