About Us

We Accelerate and Invest in All Shades of Genius.

Impact Ventures is a startup accelerator with a mission to eliminate the social and economic barriers for underrepresented Women and Minority Entrepreneurs launching high growth, tech or tech-enabled businesses and social enterprises.

We believe diversity and inclusion is the engine that drives innovation and technology is our greatest equalizer in closing the gender and racial wealth divide.
