Mission Statement

StartOut's mission is to increase the number, diversity, and impact of LGBTQ+ founders and amplify their stories to drive the economic empowerment of the community.


Almost every LGBTQ+ entrepreneur has encountered unequal access to key resources needed to advance their business. Since 2009, StartOut has been the champion for LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs, promoted the successes of our community, and researched the economic impact of LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs.

StartOut’s educational events are designed to help entrepreneurs succeed in founding, funding, and growing their business ventures. We invite LGBT entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey to expand their knowledge and emerge equipped with the knowledge to help them launch their businesses or scale to even greater heights with renewed momentum.
