I don't need a statue to inspire me to be bold and brave. What I need is a different resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Startup investing has a race problem. Here’s why Black-owned tech hubs are key to closing the racial wealth gap - CEO argues that these key tech hubs are not getting the resources they need.

Today is the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act––one of the crowning achievements of our democracy. But once the Supreme Court weakened it, some state legislatures unleashed a flood of laws designed specifically to make voting harder, especially in communities of color.

Agree with Victor. There are a bunch of good programs with real impacts but all are underfunded and impossible for small businesses and entrepreneurs to navigate. We actually just did this in foreign $ for businesses (the BUILD Act streamlined, consolidated, increased investment)

A few direct ways to take action: 1. Fund Black tech hubs in your city. You can also support directly 2. Volunteer as a mentor and connector. (so easy!) Thanks to for providing space for this convo: 8/8

I know I am not the only one to say it, but this needs to change. For anyone in tech or VC who cares about closing the racial wealth gap, I’d encourage you to support Black-led entrepreneur support organizations with more than just words. 7/8

I often think about how said, “Folks of color and women are often asked to sit at the table and give ideas – to do the emotional labor of identifying what’s wrong with tech culture. But we’re not provided with resources to actually fix things.” 6/8

.’s leaders wrote that Black-owned tech hubs are a key tool to closing the racial wealth gap, serving as the “first line of support” for innovators of color. But these orgs are “chronically under-appreciated, under-supported, underestimated, and underfunded.” 5/8

This is unfortunately a typical story for so many tech hubs run by and for entrepreneurs of color. Last month several Black tech leaders formed : a coalition of entrepreneur support organizations like I3 devoted to leveling the playing field for Black founders. 4/8

Aaron told me about how funding has been… elusive to say the least. For In3 this means: Hiring part-time contractors over full-time staff. Doubling down on duties. Aaron leads classes at In3, runs their social media, and wipes down tables each day. 3/8
