Rewrite the Playbook

The current model for building startups was not designed with founders of color in mind. Black & Brown Founders aims to empower Black and Latinx entrepreneurs by providing resources and community to launch and scale tech companies. 
 

Less than 1% of venture funding goes to Black and Latinx founders. 

Yet we are the driving force behind small business creation in America.

What We Cover

During our workshops, we cover topics like how to generate leads and close contracts, how to effectively manage your cash flow, alternative forms of financing, building apps without writing code, building a team with limited budget, design on a shoestring, and more.

"Out of all the conferences, workshops, etc for startup founders...this one was the most useful and applicable.

It said, ‘here is the reality, but here are some tools to combat that’.”
