Empowering Black Founders from Accelerator to Prosperity

Mar 9, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Historically, Black and other underrepresented founders have not had equitable access to the social, human, and financial capital. Because of this, the odds of scaling their businesses are systemically stacked against them. Accelerators specifically designed to assist with overcoming these barriers can provide founders with the means for securing tangible gains, access to funding, market visibility, and strategic partnerships. We will examine how participation in accelerators contributes to minority owned businesses long-term success and wealth-building potential.
