Breaking Down Barriers: Joe Kapp

This week, Startup Space founder, David Ponraj, is joined by Joe Kapp, President and cofounder of the National Center for Resource Development (NCRD), a national nonprofit that helps foundations, nonprofits, higher education institutions and others achieve greater impact by developing resources to more effectively execute their missions. The two discuss how entrepreneurship can become more accessible for underserved and underrepresented founders, and they explore the impact of RuralRISE, a network for rural ecosystem builders Kapp cofounded, and National Entrepreneurship Week (NatlESHIPWeek), a non-partisan initiative Kapp co-chairs.
