Crowdfunding for Black and Brown women-identifying entrepreneurs

In 2016, Shelly Omilade Bell founded Black Girl Ventures (BGV) as a way to help Black and Brown women-identifying entrepreneurs find funding and financial advice. At BGV pitch events, Black women entrepreneurs have three minutes to present their ideas. Audience members can then back the ones they like through Raisify.co, the organization’s crowdfunding platform. To date, BGV has held more than 45 pitch events in a dozen cities and raised more than $1 million for 600-plus participants.
