Here's some more about Dawn:
Dawn Myers is founder at THE MOST and Director at the Vinetta Project. She started THE MOST to make products to meet the nuanced needs of women of color, but engineering and manufacturing tech enabled hardware takes an incredible amount of capital and training. Dawn had to get creative to raise funds to surmount the heightened barriers to entry for minorities in this space and quickly found herself advising and coaching other women on how to work what they have to get what they need. Along the way, she acquired a passion for helping women and women of color in particular learn and grow in entrepreneurship. A JD and graduate Dartmouth's Business Bridge Program, she is committed to creating quality programming for Black women founders, the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs in the US, as well other underrepresented founders striving to innovate for their communities.
