Adding to 25 years of impact.
25 is more than a number. It’s more than a milestone. It’s more than data. 25 is proof that progress is possible. 25 is a commitment to creating opportunity. 25 is a community determined to deliver equity. 25 is the people, the businesses, the risks, the chances, the lessons, the growth, and the change. But more than anything, 25 is just the beginning.
Join us this year as we celebrate 25 years of impact and reaffirm our commitment to investing in equity-driven entrepreneurs.
