Our Signature Programs

One of the greatest challenges women of color business owners face is access to capital. According to the Federal Reserve Bank, US minority business owners are significantly less likely to get all of the funding they apply for. Specifically, 19% of Hispanic-owned businesses, 16% of Black-owned, and 15% of Asian-owned, compared to 35% of white owned businesses. In 2022, Women-founded teams received 1.9 percent of venture capital funds, and only 0.1 percent of venture funds went to Black and Latino women founders.

Our programs help women on color get in the ring prepared to fight for what they need to build the companies we need!
