Toronto-based Dream Maker Ventures is launching a new partnership model with the Dream Legacy Foundation, the new philanthropic thought leadership arm of parent company Dream Maker Corporation, which will focus on entrepreneurial programming for founders in marginalized communities. The Diversity Program initiative will see Dream Maker Ventures working with five partner organizations to offer new early-stage entrepreneurial programming tailored toward tech founders in five underrepresented communities: Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, members of the LGBTQA+ community, refugees, and newcomers to Canada. The initiative is aimed to go beyond social impact investing and is intended to offer support and showcase the competitive advantage of entrepreneurs from traditionally underrepresented groups.
