Discover how to make your incubation services more inclusive and supportive of entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups.

You will learn from subject matter experts, social entrepreneurs with lived experiences of the challenges being explored, and business support organisations leading the way in developing and delivering inclusive incubation services. Line-ups for each workshop will be announced soon.
