DiverseCity Ventures backs Founders whose companies have social, economic, and / or environmental impact. We do this in two ways:
1.) DiverseCity Ventures LLC, an impact-oriented venture capital firm, which invests primarily in early-stage technology-driven companies with large addressable markets, product-market fit, a dynamic founding team, and high probability of outsized returns.
2.) DiverseCity Ventures Inc., a non-profit arm, which fosters collaboration within the innovation economy while training, incubating, and supporting early stage entrepreneurs. We advise pre-seed and seed-staged companies and strive to close the funding gap that too often keeps founders from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds from getting on the playing field.
Our advisory committee is comprised of individuals who bring unique knowledge, skills, and insights to DiverseCity Ventures' board of directors. Advisors contribute technical expertise and help to ensure effective planning. They offer fresh perspectives on programmatic issues while serving as advocates, ambassadors, and liaisons to relevant constituencies,
Other activities may include speaking engagements, leading or serving on committees , monitoring and strengthening of programs and services, ensuring adequate financial resources, and enhancing our impact.
