Accelerating and Investing In All Shades of Genius

Building the Future of Business, Innovation, and Tech for the Underrepresented.

Featured In

Our Work

Creating Generational Wealth.

Less than 2% of African Americans, LatinX Americans, and American Indians are represented in technology today. Less than 1% of the $85+ billion in angel and venture capital goes to founders from these same communities.
We accelerate and invest in all shades of genius removing barriers and providing women and people of color access to the skills and opportunities within the 21st century economy.

Education & Career Pathways

We work to create a more diverse pipeline to STEM education and workforce opportunities through strategic partnerships and direct services.

Inclusive Entrepreneurship

We use a hands-on style of learning combined with culturally relative and evidence-based programming to address the unique challenges of underrepresented entrepreneurs.

Research & Advocacy

We build stakeholder and community cohesion through data collection and research studies, intentional ecosystem development, and thought leadership.

Impact Investing

We create and facilitate opportunities to democratize and deploy capital that prioritizes both financial returns and social impact.

Our Partners

Changing The Narrative

We believe inclusion and diversity is the engine for innovation.
Your support ensures all genius has both access and opportunity to flourish in the 21st century economy.
