With a membership representing nearly $300M and several thousand jobs, 1863 is fortunate to have crossed paths with some of the best and brightest founders in the nation.

We accelerate black and brown entrepreneurs from high potential to high growth, through rigorous leadership training and strategic market access. ‍ Our thesis is that entrepreneurship is becoming an increasingly viable pathway for the New Majority to build wealth. Our goal is to facilitate this trend by reducing barriers and risk for these founders across the nation.
