Making Access to Capital Equal for All Founders


Access to capital is the fuel that makes startups go and access to community keeps them running. But access to capital needed to grow one's business is still not evenly distributed. Only 3% of Latino-owned companies ever reach $1 million in revenue. 56% of black business owners report obstacles obtaining credit to grow their businesses. 60% of women entrepreneurs say they don't have the same access to capital at their male counterparts. Let's talk about the causes and the fixes.
