INCLUSION IN ACTION
We believe internal diversity is the foundation of a truly impactful inclusion-focussed program, so our team is composed of amazing professionals who represent minority groups including BIPOC, LGBTQ, and more. Some of us are exceptional talents at the beginning of our careers, while others are seasoned industry leaders.
We are based in — and focused on — the Midwest, which has surpassed other regions in exit valuations despite receiving less than half of the investment dollars taken in the other regions.
Lightship supports remarkable entrepreneurs in emerging innovation hubs and contributes to economic development and job growth at the municipal, state, and federal levels.
