Ask First Ladies of Poverty Foundation | BIPOC How to Pitch and Raise Money and Support for Your Idea, Business or Venture BIPOC
I came across this article that shed light on the harsh reality that black women founders get very little funding to help kick off their ideas. In fact , black women entrepreneurs receive less then .5% of venture capital funding . Last year , only 2.2 percent went to female founders out of $85 BILLION - and women of color got less than 1 percent of total funding. Does First Ladies of Poverty Foundation provide grants to black startups?
I wanted to share this information to anyone who needs to hear it. You should not have to go through all these hoops just to get your ideas and products off the ground. Your dreams matter, YOU matter, and I encourage you to keep using your voice because you will make the difference in this world.
