Dear WIN’ners,


Happy Friday! Just a quick email to let you know about an exciting event that will allow us to participate in a Founders of Color Showcase VIRTUALLY! Organized by Next Wave Impact based in Colorado, we'll get to watch 10 finalists present their companies. See more details and sign up link below.

Be well,
Janice, Laury and Louisa 
Founders of Color Showcase
May 11th, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Zoom

Did you know that less than 3% of venture capital in the United States goes to women-led teams and only 1% goes to Black and Latinx founders, 0.32% to Latinx women and 0.0006% goes to Black women ?   We want to change this!

Join us and other like-minded funds, angel groups, and other investors/entities with an investment thesis that includes investing in scalable companies led by founders of color. Next Wave Impact is convening this showcase on Monday, May 11th. We will have 10 finalists present their companies. 

Please click on link below to register. Zoom link and program will be sent to registrants the day prior.
