The Black Technology Ecosystem Investors Certificate Program is a nine-lesson, comprehensive training on the tactics, nuances, and strategies required to become a knowledgeable investor in high-growth technology startups and venture funds. It is uniquely designed for current or aspiring investors who want to look through the lens of racial equity and support Black founders and Black-founded companies with their investment dollars. During the nine lessons, participants will grow their knowledge and experience in all aspects of the investment process and leave with an increased ability to find and make sound investments in the kind of companies they want to support. While the focus of this course is Black technology, the learning can also be applied towards investment in historically underrepresented communities.
Ideal participants for the BTEI Course
- Those interested in becoming investors and who want to direct more of their investment dollars towards Black-founded companies/entrepreneurs or the ventures of other underrepresented groups
- Practiced investors who want to invest in Black tech, but may not be as effective in finding and connecting with these companies (i.e. want to increase their pipeline)
- Any current or aspiring investor who already has this interest/value/commitment and would benefit from the tactics and practice that this course will provide
