Impact and diversity are huge factors in our investment thesis. They’ve been way underrepresented in the venture world since inception. If you’re a Black entrepreneur starting their first venture, and you raised your first few thousands from your neighborhood or the church community, you can’t just blow up that cap table and start your next venture really quickly… And you’re not going to get a second chance.
