From Seed to Series C

New Voices provides capital for start-ups, established businesses and community-based enterprises led by women of color entrepreneurs. We work with businesses as early as Seed round to and through Series C funding. Our goal is to invest in your success by providing:

Unprecedented Access, Capital and Expertise to Grow Your Business

Opportunities for Economic Inclusion and Wealth Creation

A Supportive Network of Investors, Partners and Entrepreneurs

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

New Voices Fund will launch this summer with three investment programs available through the Fund and Foundation.

Equity Investments

(Through the Fund)

Private equity and venture capital investments are available to start ups and established businesses.

Recoverable Grants

(Through the Foundation)

Recoverable grants will be awarded to businesses of interest that are not yet ready for equity or other forms of investment.

Mission-Related Investments/Loans

(Through the Foundation)

Mission-related investments/loans will be made to advance businesses for which a grant is no longer appropriate, but more traditional forms of capital investment are still premature.

Investment sectors

If you’re an entrepreneur in one of the following industries, we’d love to hear from you. Our existing connections and relationships provide unprescedented access for women of color entrepreneurs.

Consumer-Centered Business

(includes Personal Care, Beauty, Health & Wellness, Food)

Fashion

Tech

Media & Entertainment
