Our Mission

We accelerate great businesses through mentoring and investments to close the racial and gender wealth gaps.

Our Vision

An economy that works
for all.

Our Values


We believe that entrepreneurs come in all types and that they have the power to transform communities as leaders, believers, and agents of change.


We build a culture of community where everyone is valued, respected, and has the room to lead.


We lift up underrepresented voices, we seek out different points of view, we cultivate new perspectives and ideas, and we listen intently.


We strive for excellence, finding new and creative ways to work together for our entrepreneurs and our mission.


We earn the trust of our community of entrepreneurs, partners, investors, and donors because we do what we say, when we say we’ll do it, with integrity.
