With our expansion to Houston through support from our partners at JPMorgan Chase & Co., The Ion and Verizon, we are doubling down on programming and services to help more startups led by people of color and women founders grow their own companies - creating jobs and greatly expanding economic mobility.
"DivInc is about broadening the startup ecosystem by making it more authentically diverse, equitable and inclusive of underrepresented entrepreneurs. When we, as a community, do this successfully, we optimize our opportunities for economic GDP growth, we can help reduce racial/gender wealth divide, and drive greater innovation."
- Preston L. James II, CEO of DivInc
For each member company, DivInc is providing over $100K value in entrepreneur education and support programming, hundreds of hours of executive mentorship, and life-time access to its community and network, all at no cost to founders. And, through a grant from spring 2021 title sponsor Verizon, each spring cohort member will receive $10k in non-dilutive seed funding!
"As part of our larger Citizen Verizon responsible business plan, we're proud to partner with DivInc and other organizations that connect diverse technology entrepreneurs with crucial resources to develop innovative solutions and advance their businesses," said
- Carrie Hughes, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Verizon
