NEXT Economy LIVE: Removing Systemic Barriers to Contribution by Investing in Black, Latino, and Native American Technology Entrepreneurs in Minneapolis and Beyond
Social Venture Circle hosts this interactive discussion on how to remove the systemic barriers to contribution by investing in Black, Latino, and Native American technology entrepreneurs in Minneapolis and beyond with Dr. Paul Campbell, Dr. Chris Brooks, Jerome Hamilton, and Chris Dykstra (Brown Venture Group).
Founded in 2018 in Minneapolis, MN, Brown Venture Group (BVG) is a Black-owned venture capital firm focused on Black, Latino, and Native American technology entrepreneurs. BVG provides technology founders of color a studio environment from which they can launch and scale their startup, including capital, training, and networks. We believe that technology entrepreneurship can bypass many of the cognitive and racial biases that have historically prevented communities of color from flourishing. Moreover, generation after generation of adversity has made entrepreneurs of color particularly resilient. This resilience, combined with the fact that investment in entrepreneurs of color has been almost non-existent, represents the best un-activated market for technology-focused venture capital.
