Ending The "Friends & Family" Fundraising B.S. For Black Founders

Updated: Jun 23

Telling Black founders to raise capital from friends and family isn't normally very helpful. We typically don't have friends and family who can give us what we need to launch our businesses. This Fed Reserve chart bears out this fact and shows median white family wealth is 8X median Black family wealth.

The ParentPreneur Foundation is teaming up with Aaron Clark, CEO of Justice Reskill, to raise $125K to pay for prototype apps for 25 Black ParentPreneurs. With these apps, our entrepreneurs will be able to collect user feedback and present the apps to potential investors.

The program will use justice-involved software engineers who are apprentices, which will help them transform their lives, and build a dope app MVP for our members to get user feedback and show the app to potential investors.

If empowering Black ParentPreneurs, so they can leave a legacy for their beautiful Black children matters to you, please make a tax-deductible donation.

Every penny counts.

Ad astra. 🚀
