Venture capital counts more Black check writers than ever before.
However, representation continues to lag and multiple systemic barriers remain.
BLCK VC is excited to host the “State of Black Venture” event in partnership with Silicon Valley Bank. In our inaugural State of Black Venture Report, we establish a baseline of representation in the venture industry. We conducted surveys, interviews, and industry research, and codified the information in an effort to tell a clear story about where we are as a community today. However, the real story is behind the numbers; this webinar is our way of bringing the data to life.
We’ve invited Black leaders in venture to share some of the challenges they’ve faced on their path to becoming check writers, as well as the ways in which they’ve navigated systemic barriers.
