Did you know that less than 5% of venture capital in the United States goes to companies with female, Black, and Latino CEOs? 1,2 Let’s work together and change this!
Join us and other like-minded funds, angel groups, and other investors/entities with an investment thesis that includes investing in scalable companies led by founders of color. Next Wave Impact is convening this showcase on Monday, May 11th. We will have 10 finalists present their companies.
We are looking for like-minded investors that share our investment thesis of investing in underrepresented entrepreneurs. Accredited investors are encouraged to consider investing in one or more of these companies after undertaking their own due diligence or in collaboration with others.
