Today, only 1% of founders backed by venture capital in the United States are Black. This is appalling and shows how the odds are stacked against Black technologists and entrepreneurs. The onus is on us in the tech community to start evening the odds.

In an effort to provide concrete, long-lasting support, we are making our software completely free to U.S.-based, early-stage startups led by Black founders.


Criteria for free access

U.S.-based companies led by one or more Black founders, that have raised less than $30M in venture capital, and have fewer than 150 employees are eligible for this program. We request that founders apply personally and share with us how else we can help them.

Our goal is to help you scale your business as rapidly and efficiently as possible.
