Paradigm Shift

Exacerbating the Racial
Wealth Gap

Angels are early investors in startup companies.
…and less than 4% of the earliest Angel Investors are Black and Latino.

Investors Take The Lion
Share Of Wealth

On average 78% of the wealth accrues to the investors in Venture-backed companies.

Therefore, by focusing primarily on funding diverse entrepreneurs, the racial wealth gap is exacerbated...

…because diverse investors are not part of the early funding rounds.

Our Investor Accelerator Creates a Diverse Investor Class that invests in early-stage companies.

By doing this, we help to close the racial wealth gap.

For Many Generations Diverse Entrepreneurs And Investors Have Been Excluded From Participating In The Innovation Economy.
