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.



Secure the Bag

Our programs focus on profitability over fundability. We’re not just creating awareness, but changing the paradigm.

We provide Black and Latinx entrepreneurs with a nuanced, authentic approach to bootstrapping.  Our workshops discuss topics like how to generate leads and close contracts, how to effectively manage your cash flow, building a team with limited budget, and more.

"This conference was life changing, and really helped me in the direction I am taking my organization.

I actually know what I have to do and how to do it.”
