New Community Transformation Fund - Denver

The mission of the New Community Transformation Fund -Denver (NCTF-Denver) is to create above market returns by investing in the domestic emerging market. NCTF-Denver is an early-stage venture capital fund based in Denver, Colorado with the goal of investing primarily in companies owned and/or operated by founders of color, while providing suitable risk-adjusted returns to its investors.

We define investment as the interconnectedness of capital, leadership, and the fundamentals of business. We are active participants in the success of our portfolio companies. We leverage our extensive ecosystem to mitigate risk and engineer wins.

NCTF Denver has built a robust network of mentors, advisors, and corporate partners. Those partnerships with the fund actively assist in the brokering of relationships with the portfolio companies to assist in strategic customer partnerships as well as talent acquisition for senior management and board members.

We believe in a more diverse economy, driven by economic prosperity in Denver and Colorado’s communities of color. With greater access to capital and essential support services, we’re creating upward mobility for entrepreneurs who haven’t been given this opportunity historically. NCTF Denver is actively partnering with investors who share this vision and are ready to lead.
