INVESTING IN BLACK EXCELLENCE

Founded in 2021, Black Innovation Capital was built with the objective of investing in promising black founders in the technology space. We make early and transformational investments in disruptive
companies often answering unmet needs of minority communities. We are intentional about our investment strategy and look to partner only where we can add value, with hard-working and visionary entrepreneurs.

We want funding to be more accessible to innovative companies led by black teams to build wealth for our community and enrich the venture capital space. Our vision is to create a business ecosystem that is more inclusive, from a portfolio perspective - through a wider number of black-led companies receiving catalytic funding, and from an investors perspective - through a wider number of young black professionals trained to become investment managers.
