Collab Capital is a $50mm fund that helps Black founders build sustainable businesses. Collab Capital creates a growth solution for Black founders seeking capital, who value profitability, ownership, and optionality.A key pillar to solving the growing US racial wealth gap is business formation and growth in the Black community. In order to ensure more Black founded businesses have the resources they need to be successful, the ability to maintain majority ownership, and increase revenue, we’ve designed a new investment model which aligns our interests with those of the founders we support
Currently most of the existing wealth in the Black community is first generation and accrued through non-technical industries such as real estate, construction, finance, entertainment, sports, and others. Lack of entrepreneurial experience in the technology sector and lower risk tolerance in modern investment models, leaves many investors with a slim appetite for higher-risk technology investments. In order to increase participation among this group, we simplify their decision making process with new investment vehicles.
Our mission is to establish a new institution that provides a viable pathway to sustained wealth for the Black community. We establish this pathway by investing in tech and tech-enabled companies through efficient capital and effective connections between Black innovators, investors, and influencers.
