Black women are America’s fastest-growing demographic of entrepreneurs but have also been hit the hardest by the pandemic. We have partnered with The BOSS Network for a three-year program to tackle inequality, provide support and guidance during the pandemic and beyond, as well as help black women achieve their goals with everything that is needed to successfully start new businesses.

Years Two & Three
We will again repeat the same number of grants awarded as well as provide one year of business mentoring for black women-owned small businesses.
A future of equality
Our work to knock down barriers to reach equality doesn’t stop here. We’re working with even more partners to help underrepresented communities start successful businesses.
We are committed to building an inclusive digital network you can trust. Through our Tech for Good pillar, we want to ensure everyone has equal opportunities to access life-changing data and technology while also championing data protection, security, and the ethical use of customer data.
