DLL Storify of Platform 2015, Day #3 of 3 -- Sunday 10/4/15

Last update: Friday 10/2/15 @ 1:03 pm
As per the mission statement on its Website, Platform is a non-profit organization that seeks to increase the interest, participation, and success of those underrepresented in the innovation economy — with a particular focus on blacks, Latinos and women. Platform is creating a hub through which inspiration is joined with education, opportunity and resources. Focused on underrepresented groups, it works to broaden the funnel that feeds new entrepreneurship, reduce the barrier to entry, and assist along the path to success.

As per its two preceding conferences, this year's three day gathering is a superb networking event that has gathered over 600 of the world's foremost thinkers and doers from underrepresented minorities.  Together they are creating a deeply moving experience by tackling big, challenging topics about innovation, society, and invention. Featured speakers include Jack Dorsey (co-Founder/interim CEO of Twitter and Founder/CEO of Square) and David Drummond (Google's Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Chief Legal Officer). More information can be found on Platform's event page and on its schedule of speakers page (pdf). 
Day #1 (Friday) | Day #2 (Saturday) | Day #3 (Sunday)
