Empowering the Next Generation Of Innovators & Investors

HBCU.vc is a not-for-profit organization connecting and equipping the next generation of black and brown technology innovators and venture capital investors. Our Student Investor Fellowship offers a unique opportunity for students attending historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to earn real world experience in the venture capital and technology industry. Fellows are taught and mentored by experienced venture capitalists who help them to identify and support companies seeking investment. This first of its kind program allows students to gain experience that jumpstarts their careers AND enables them to make a difference in their communities by supporting local entrepreneurs.
