Book Launch: The New Builders: Face to Face with the True Future of Business
Join Foundry Group in celebrating the launch of The New Builders by our partner, Seth Levine. This will be a one-hour panel discussion led by Seth and joined by co-author Elizabeth MacBride, Colorado Senator John Hickenlooper, Sistahbiz’s Makisha Boothe, and Lorena Cantarovici of Maria Empanada. Connect with experts and enjoy a spirited discussion around the changing face of entrepreneurship in America. 
 
Book Premise: Despite popular belief to the contrary, entrepreneurship in the United States is dying. Since before the Great Recession of 2008, the Covid pandemic has accelerated the negative trend in American entrepreneurship. New firms are being started at a slower rate, are employing fewer workers, and are being formed disproportionately in just a few major cities in the U.S. At the same time, large chains are opening more locations. Companies such as Amazon, with their deliver everything and anything, are rapidly displacing Main Street businesses.

In The New Builders, we tell the stories of the next generation of entrepreneurs -- and argue for the future of American entrepreneurship. That future lies in surprising places -- and will, in particular, rely on the success of women, black and brown entrepreneurs. Our country hasn't yet even recognized the identities of the New Builders, let alone developed strategies to support them.
