We are equalizing opportunity for underrepresented founders. We provide equitable access to 'Friends & Family' capital to launch brilliant, untapped ideas.
Due to centuries of systemic inequities, there is a racial wealth gap in America: White families have 7x more wealth than Black families, and White-led businesses have access to 37x more startup financing.
There are numerous later stage VC funds aiming to close the funding gap for underrepresented founders. However, these founders often need an earlier investment to grow and reach these later stages.
We provide a 'Friends & Family' investment to underrepresented founders. Donations and support from the grassroots community create an evergreen fund that will empower entrepreneurs for generations to come.
