Black women represent 42% of net new women-owned businesses started last year in the U.S.

We launched IFundWomen of Color in January 2020 because we firmly believe in supporting diverse, women-owned businesses.

Yet in the past decade, Black women–led businesses have captured just .0006% of the total venture capital funding pie.
