Black investors remain underrepresented in VC. The latest VC Human Capital Survey tracked little progress in the representation of Black partners between 2018 and 2020, though there is some optimism to be found in the growing representation of Black junior investment professionals. Venture Forward’s mission to diversify and empower the VC industry includes accelerating the representation of Black investors and recognizing changemakers who share our vision for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive venture community. Last year, we highlighted leaders and initiatives driving more Black representation in VC. This year, we’re highlighting the accomplishments of 15 Black VCs – rising stars to watch, community catalyzers, and investors making significant impact.
While we only featured 15 Black VCs in this post, there are many more whose accomplishments deserve to be recognized and celebrated – please help us do so by tagging them on social!
