LAB FUND

📢 Applications are Open

HBCUvc Lab Fund is what HBCUvc calls our "teaching venture capital firm." The fund is managed by current fellows and partners to support ambitious founders grow their companies. Selected Lab Fund Founders receive training, mentorship, non dilutive funding, and introductions to the HBCUvc investor network. Our current focus is on early-stage technology founders with a working prototype.


The Lab Fund isn’t an accelerator with a fixed end date. However, we will have a number of activities during the onboarding period to help founder entrepreneurs build a strong relationship with the HBCUvc community (investors, fellows, other entrepreneurs) and obtain fundamental knowledge to grow their technology-based business.
