Birds of a feather flock together. For evidence look no further than financing in the startup world.
Already there are venture capital funds available for female founders. Now a Black trio of brothers from Toronto is creating opportunities for BIPOC entrepreneurs.
Struggling to finance his cannabis business, the youngest sibling turned to his showbiz brothers, who had successfully launched a support program for Black actors in Film.
Their fund is currently worth €16 million, a figure that could soon increase fourfold.
Young enterprises with at least one BIPOC founder are provided cheques between €330,000 and €3.3 million, with the focus on medtech, edtech, fintech and real estate startups.
Time and again, it seems, Black actors are serving as role models.
