ABOUT US

BIPOC entrepreneurship has an access problem, and it shows in the success rate gap for diverse-owned businesses. 30% of all businesses fail in the first two years of operations-- but 80% of Black-owned businesses fail in the first 18 months.


Our mission is to create opportunities for innovation and progress in pursuit of economic and racial equity. We do it through our technology products, programs, and community of people with different perspectives, assets, and needs.


Our theory of change is that access to knowledge, networks, and financing solutions can give hard work the same horsepower for every individual and in every community, and, if that can be achieved, economic and racial equity are assured.


We believe that radical change is possible when we work together as a collective community to do what is necessary. For more on that, you can read our Manifesto about it here.
