Black Ambition’s goal is to fund bold ideas, and to help reduce barriers to capital. Black and Latinx entrepreneurs will be eligible to receive mentorship and win up to $1,000,000 in funding.
Black Ambition recognizes HBCUs are vital engines of economic opportunity with important legacies. By tapping into the vibrant and brilliant HBCU community, we will help to fund high potential ideas with our capital that can spark and support the next generation of successful entrepreneurs. The Black Ambition HBCU Prize contains two tracks - in one, entrepreneurs will be eligible for up to $50,000 in funding and in the other, entrepreneurs will be eligible for up to $250,000 in funding. Entrepreneurs in both tracks will be eligible for mentorship.
The application period is open for two and a half months. Selected semifinalists will then participate in a mentorship cohort refining their application and advancing their business. Grand prize winners will be announced at the Black Ambition Demo Day.
