We are the antidote to the so-called 2% problem in Silicon Valley. We believe that the abundance of national black wealth and expertise combined with the youthful black genius and tech talent will produce successful next-generation technology companies with black techpreneurs at the helm.
Our Fund was born out of a powerful intersections of moments at The Stanford Black Alumni Summit in May 2015 in Atlanta. During the summit, a thought-provoking panel about Black tech opportunities sparked a lively conversation about taking action. That dialogue illuminated a simple realization – the lack of Black techpreneurs and the abundance of potential Black angel investors represented an extraordinary opportunity. Our founding board worked diligently for one year to create the
Black Angel TechFund.
