Public Programming Webinar: Building Social Capital

December 6, 2022 | 10:00-11:00am EST

Startups that are grounded within networks of high social capital and utilize those networks have higher rates of success. Social capital is the extent to which individuals have deep and meaningful interactions with others via membership in diverse social networks that contribute to one’s ability to thrive.

It involves:
1) Social participation in networks
2) Levels of trust within those network
3) Resources and benefits that are derived from social participation

For minority women and nonbinary founders, the strength of their social capital is just as important as financial capital to entrepreneurial success.

Join Halcyon in this webinar panel discussion to hear from experienced entrepreneurs & business strategists and learn how to draw from their networks and beyond to build the social capital networks needed to thrive.
