|PLACE||We are dedicated to supporting communities across the country that are often overlooked in investment conversations (e.g., “Mighty Middle” cities, rural areas, Indian Country, etc.).|
|IDENTITY||We are intentionally focused on Black, Latinx, and Indigenous founders who have long struggled |
against an economy designed to deny them access. We strive to include other voices as well, such as female-identified, LGBTQ+, and founders with disabilities.
|STAGE||We are looking for emerging founders in the early stages (development -> launch -> growth) for whom a small capital investment and professional advising support would have a significant impact.|
|SECTOR||We are open to a variety of solution types — creative, tech-enabled, products & services, infrastructural — with a preference for business ideas that can scale and build generational wealth. |
|IMPACT||We believe that businesses can meet today’s urgent challenges. As a result, we seek out founders who are driving real community impact.|
|ADVISING||We are looking for founders who are tackling key internal obstacles, such as strategic planning, marketing, HR, IT, finances, operations, and COVID resiliency, so that we can match them with enterprise supporters with relevant professional expertise.|
