Black Ambition is a non-profit initiative that provides a bridge to success for Black and Latinx entrepreneurs who are launching tech, design, healthcare, and consumer products and services start-ups through its prize competitions for aspiring Black and/or Latinx entrepreneurs from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and its competition focused on Black and/or Latinx entrepreneurs from the broader Black/Latinx community.
This webinar is for the Black Ambition prize. Teams applying to this prize must have at least one founder or co-founder that identifies as Black or Latinx. A member of the founding team is defined as having a VP or C-level role. In addition, ventures must have raised no more than $1M in dilutive funding to date and have shown progress against their concept (e.g., working prototype, minimum viable product)
Black Ambition is hosting the Black Ambition HBCU Prize webinar with the support of The Bridgespan Group, a non-profit consulting firm that has significant experience with prize competitions such as Lever For Change, the Audacious Project, and Google.org.
