About the
Inclusive Capital Summit

The Inclusive Capital Summit is a 3-day interactive experience convening founders, funders, and innovators focused on seeking solutions to lack of capital, access, tech, and inclusion for under-estimated communities.

It’s now more urgent than ever to transgress the recent strides in meeting equity milestones for BIPOC and Women entrepreneurs. The Inclusive Capital Summit brings collaborative, solution-based, fearless conversation to the forefront, empowering communities with the knowledge, networks, and platform to carry the movement forward.

Moving from meaningful dialogue to measurable change.

Why did we launch this event?

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, minority-owned businesses are more likely to forgo applying for loans for fear of rejection, less likely to receive them when they do apply, and more likely to pay higher interest rates on business loans compared to their non-minority counterparts.

A U.S. Federal Reserve study found that Black entrepreneurs were denied loans nearly twice as often as white business owners.

The average equity investment in minority-owned firms is only 43 percent of that in non-minority firms.

Even though 40% of privately held companies are founded by women, only 2.8% of venture capital funding is received by women.

Black founders only got 1% of VC funding in 2022.

The list goes on…

Founders, Funders, and Innovators, it's time to change this...

Money isn't the only form of capital. Check out these five forms of capital covered in the Summit:
