Office Hours: Funding Founders of Color

In-person session

October 1, 2020 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Sign up for a one-on-one session with Dujon Smith from Accenture Ventures to explore new ideas to address the ongoing bias and lack of access to capital faced by Black entrepreneurs in the venture capital community.

During your conversation with Dujon, discuss how diversity and inclusion can be incorporated into key business priorities and strategic goals. And learn about Accenture’s recent launch of the Black Founders Development Program–a new commitment to help level the playing field for Black entrepreneurs through investment, mentorship, and community. Explore how you might take part in this initiative, whether through research, conversation, action, or partnership.
