The Power of Being an Out Entrepreneur

The Power of Being an Out Entrepreneur | Gay Global (LGBT) | Scoop.it

Can you be the gay Bill Gates? The organization known as StartOut thinks so... Entrepreneurs should never have to choose between the closet and their careers, yet one in three LGBT entrepreneurs in the process of seeking funding for their business are not out to investors. When asked why, nearly half said it was not relevant, with another 12 percent believing it would hurt them.

Matt Skallerud's curator insight, August 10, 3:21 PM

Americans today are growing more supportive of LGBT people and their equality, evidenced with the nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage in 2015. However, it's easy to forget people can still get fired from their jobs in 26 states simply for being gay or bisexual, in 28 for being transgender. Further, as entrepreneurial activity plays an increasingly important role in the overall U.S. economy, how do we ensure that LGBT entrepreneurs are protected against discrimination?

The reality is that startups founded by LGBT entrepreneurs are at risk for discrimination — affecting where they locate their businesses, their ability to raise capital, and how they build trust with investors. These are the findings of a recently released study from StartOut, the leading national nonprofit to support LGBTQ entrepreneurs.

How Many Americans Are Gay?

Matt Skallerud's curator insight, May 26, 9:02 AM

As the LGBT population moves into its full and equal place in public life, many people are asking an old question with new urgency: just how many LGBT Americans are there? After centuries in the shadows, many experts believe that we need a full accounting of the nation’s LGBT population and how they live for legal, economic and health reasons. Now, for the first time, a group of experts from 21 federal agencies are working on a project to figure out how to do just that. The results could pave the way for first-ever surveys of America’s sexual orientations and gender identities and influence everything from local laws to military policy to health care.
