Black and Brown Founders Project
March 20, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
We want to change the notion that venture capital funding is required to build a successful company, especially in tech.
We know that “bootstrapping” doesn’t look the same for black and brown founders as it does for others. Money doesn’t flow abundantly into our communities. We don’t typically have people around us to chip into a “friends and family round”, we don’t usually have access to investor networks, and we are often underestimated by investors because we don’t fit the pattern of what they are used to seeing.
