ABOUT

Black Capital is an early-stage fund focused on investing in black and other underrepresented founders.

MISSION

Black Capital’s mission is to build wealth for the black community by democratizing access to Venture Capital.

WHY

Currently, less than 2% of capital is invested in black founders, who have historically been overlooked by traditional VCs.

Black Capital was created with the vision to elevate communities of color to gain financial independence, build wealth, and decrease economic inequality in this country.
