We Believe

Our vision is to amplify the voices and dreams of Black business owners

by providing access to a venture capital ecosystem that you’re familiar with, because we are you.

We leverage our vast network to drive the success and longevity of Black-owned businesses, and to create economic equity and empowerment for the Black community.

We Believe
  • In promoting economic relief, hope, growth, and success for Black-owned businesses

  • That Black-owned businesses should have equitable access to capital opportunities

  • In empowering Black-owned businesses by providing access to free in-kind capital

  • That creating economic opportunity for Black-owned businesses leads to a stronger and more equitable economy and huge social impact

  • In eliminating systemic barriers to economic success for Black-owned businesses

Black Capital Foundation elevates Black-owned businesses through action-based capital, to support and scale your business over the long term to: narrow the wealth gap and economic disparities, help build generational wealth, gain financial independence, and democratize economic equality. The cherry on top? We care deeply about your success. Because the success of Black-owned businesses in our community is success for us all.

We’re a organization helping make Black-owned businesses capital ready for long term success by providing:

Support Systems

that you might not realize you need, or to enhance systems you have in place so you can scale.


with the right network of engaged experts and Black business leaders.

Resources and Strategy

to ensure you’re capital-ready (whether you need help to sustain or to scale).

Community Network

that connects Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs to support one another and help each other thrive.

Why We Started

We understand that access to capital is a major barrier to success for most Black business owners.

Currently, less than 2% of capital is invested in Black founders, who have historically been overlooked by traditional VCs. Fewer than 5% of American business owners are Black, and eight out of 10 Black-owned businesses fail in the first 18 months. Black businesses have historically faced an economic detour.


We aim to change that

Black-owned businesses need access to capital and funding more than ever before. So we’re providing it by building a supportive (and free!) ecosystem for Black-owned businesses to thrive in today. Black Capital Foundation is the most comprehensive program for validating, strengthening, and securing no-strings-attached capital for your Black-owned business.

There’s also an incalculable prosperity that comes through creating enduring generational wealth that can shape and secure the fortunes of Black business owners and your children and grandchildren tomorrow. We know that – from an economic perspective – there is power in helping Black-owned businesses become financially stable and independent by investing in your growth.


We’re creating the change we want to see in the world

This is your answered prayer, your leveled playing field, your open door, your antidote to financial inequity, yourcommunity… helping you achieve YOUR dreams. Because we believe that your success is success for all of us, for future generations, and for an inclusive world.

In The Black

The term “In the black” is synonymous with being profitable. By partnering our knowledge and network with your need, we know we can put Black businesses in the black and on the map.

How We're Different

Purpose (not profit) is Our Mission

We genuinely want to help Black-owned businesses be successful - no strings (or fees or fine print) attached

We Provide Capital In-Kind Instead of Cash

We know firsthand that cash only helps temporarily and that's if you know exactly how (and where) to spend it. Unlike banks and grants, we start by listening to what you’d like to achieve, develop a  business strategy to address your area of need, and then secure the resources needed to fix it (at no cost, and with no payback terms from you)

We Partner with You - Collaboratively

and listen to understand where you’re struggling most (and then provide capital-in-kind to directly impact the area of your business that’s holding you back or help launch you to the next level)
