5 Immediate Ways to Support Atlanta’s Black Tech Founders

America is hurting. Atlanta is hurting. We can do better. We must do better.

This past week I was asked what we can do to support Atlanta’s black tech founders. Start with action.

Here are five immediate ways to support Atlanta’s black tech founders.

Startup Runway – Focused exclusively on introducing under-represented entrepreneurs to investors. Donate immediately to the 501 c(3), volunteer to help, get involved.

It Takes a Village Pre-Accelerator – Free 4-month program for under-represented founders providing direct access to community, education, mentorship, and capital. Volunteer, mentor, become a customer. Cohort five just wrapped up and cohort six is accepting applications (apply now).

Valor Ventures – Only venture fund in the region focused on under-represented founders. Become a limited partner (write a big check!), refer a potential investment, help. Contact Valor now.

Atlanta Founders Academy by Google – A series of hands-on programs from Googlers, experts, and investors to support under-represented Atlanta startup founders on topics such as sales, strategy, hiring and fundraising. Get involved, give back.

Become a Customer – Check out Calendly, LeaseQuery, Storj, Patientory, Goodr, and many more. Use your resources and buying power to purchase software and subscriptions from our local black tech founders.

With so many challenges and injustices, on so many fronts, it’s daunting where to begin.

Start small, start now.

  1. David, my hat’s off to you, sir. You are indeed a leader for our new generation. Thank you for sending this – means a lot to us all. I will do my part to support under represented entrepreneurs in the community. Being one myself, I know life’s not easy to say the least.

    Thank you.
