A network capital innovation studio

📍We're growing the Southeast & the Midwest into the epicenter of Black innovation.

We're supporting and collaborating with funders, ecosystem leaders, service providers, and companies to build the most densely connected Black entrepreneurship and innovation network in the US.

You Belong, Here.

We're a community of organizations and humans who believe in "the village" and collective impact that supports Black brilliance. We serve our community of Network Partners (and often the Black entrepreneurs they serve) by connecting them to the "people, places, and things" within the network. If that sounds like you, click below to tell us more about who you are, what you do, and what you'd like to bring to our tight-knit crew.

As Black entrepreneurs, we shift the narrative.

For our communities, for our families, and for ourselves...

To our Black entrepreneur fam: This network is for you, and it’s FOR you. We’re launching our first tools for startup founders, solopreneurs, and small business owners in January 2022.

In the meantime you can get connected to tools, programs, funding opportunities, and services within the network by clicking the “Start Here” button below.
