Black Business Month: How to Get Funded

$0.00 USD

According to Amex's 2019 State of Women-Owned Business Report, Black women represent 42% of net new women-owned businesses started in the last year, which is three times their share of the female population (14%). Yet in the past decade, Black women–led businesses have captured just .0006% of the total venture capital funding pie.

In honor of Black Business Month, please join us for a discussion about this troubling problem, tactics to raising money, and how we all can support systemic change.
