HOW STRUCTURAL RACISM WORKS
Black Capital's mission is to economically empower African Americans through access to the venture capital industry.
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 Metropolitan Baptist Church will feature and event introducing “Black Capital”– an initiative led by former Sacramento Mayor, Kevin Johnson, and SeedInvest, a leading equity crowdfunding platform.
Black Capital's mission is to empower African Americans to take control of their financial future, help narrow the widening wealth gap, and to democratize access to the venture capital industry.
According to Black Capital, historically, this asset class has only been available to just 2% of the U.S. population–their objective is to ensure that people of color have a seat at the table and participate in the previously inaccessible early-stage venture capital asset class.
