Betting Big on Small Black Businesses
Spring 2024 Application

Betting Big on Small Black Businesses gives startups led by women and people of color the opportunity to gain direct access to a community, education, mentorship, and capital.

This program is an incubator and accelerator for diverse founders to clear obstacles on their path to entrepreneurship by providing the space to work with like-minded individuals, receive training and advice from seasoned professionals, and hands-on educational workshops to strengthen their skills.

At the end of this 12-week program, our goal is to cultivate Black businesses and create a well-oiled Black business ecosystem for women and BIPOC entrepreneurs to leverage their success, expansion, and innovation.


The Betting Big on Small Black Businesses program is encouraging you to reapply for the Spring 2024 cohort, if you have already applied prior to Jan 2023. This will ensure to us that you are still available for participation in the cohort! Thank you. Any questions contact:
