Partner With Us

HBCUvc’s mission is to mobilize the next generation of innovators, investors and institutions to direct how capital is formed and distributed to Black and historically excluded communities. It takes a community of partners and supporters to eradicate the systemic barriers that stand in the way of that vision. 

We are committed to partnering with venture capital firms and corporations that are mission-aligned and embrace diversity, inclusion, and belonging. Join us in creating an equitable innovation economy.

Benefits of Partnerships

By partnering with HBCUvc, you will have opportunities to:

Recruit HBCU Undergraduates, MBAs, and Recent Alumni

Recruit and hire our community of students and recent alumni of Historically Black Colleges and Universities interested in venture capital internships and careers. Many HBCUvc partners extend their recruitment efforts by leveraging our network of Fellows to hire as summer interns.  

Close the Gap in Access to Capital

Support HBCUvc’s portfolio of Lab Fund Founders by serving as a mentor, participating in investment committee meetings, and connecting entrepreneurs from Black and historically excluded communities to capital.

Increase Retention

Through our Emerging Venture Leaders Program, partners work alongside HBCUvc to provide support in retaining early and mid-career venture capitalists from Black and other historically excluded communities. This includes providing professional development and leadership tools through training and networking events.

Engage With Like-Minded Peers

Join a cohort of industry leaders working in VC and technology, committed to learning and practicing venture capital through an anti-racist lens.
