StartOut is an entrepreneurial organization that seeks to support the growth of a more diverse and inclusive business industry. Focused on serving the LGBTQ+ community, StartOut provides access to useful resources, promotes success in the community, and formulate actionable advocacy by researching the economic impacts of LGBTQ+ discrimination.
The activities of the entrepreneurial organization are supported by a large list of sponsors, including the eBay Foundation, Google, ADP, The Home Depot, Visa, and so on. This points to the growing consciousness about inequality in the job market. Some of the community resources that StartOut offers are various networking events, an online directory of LGBTQ+ businesses and entrepreneurs, a forum where users can ask each other for advice, research on topics like "the state of LGBTQ entrepreneurship in the US," and so on.
