Launch Tennessee Offers Scholarships to 36|86 For Underrepresented Entrepreneurs

FedEx Global Entrepreneur Access Program provides 100 female, minority and veteran entrepreneurs with complimentary passes to 36|86 Entrepreneurship Festival. Applications are now closed.

We know that a healthy startup environment supports diversity. That’s why more than half of the speakers on the 36|86 lineup are from underrepresented groups in business.

When planning the program, we specifically focused on elevating female and minority voices who represent a diversity of experience and industry, from Arlan Hamilton, whose company funds LGBT, minority and female founders, to Karen Cahn, who founded iFundWomen to increase access to capital for female entrepreneurs.

This year, we’re taking that diversity representation a step further. For the first time ever, we’re excited to offer 100 scholarships to female, minority and veteran entrepreneurs to attend 36|86.

The FedEx Global Entrepreneur Access Program opens up access to founders who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend this powerful learning and networking event. We’re so proud to offer these scholarships!
