Black and Latinx Women Founders + their big ideas and high growth companies + our training, network, and access to funding = something the startup world has never seen before
At digitalundivided we have a mantra: Go BIG, or go home.
And with 52 companies built, $25 million in investments raised, and 2000 Founders reached – we DID that!
But this type of entrepreneurial success often eludes Black and Latinx women Founders. Those whose grit and hustle are unmatched, but often go unnoticed. Those with ideas and dreams that are groundbreaking and game changing, but still go unfunded.
This is where we come in.
We’re all about investing where others won’t. Championing what others don’t. We’re doubling down on opportunities that others consider small bets. We’re shattering the myth that Black & Latinx women Founders can’t be successful.
And going big without asking permission.
So when the tech scene learns what the women in our global community have done we’re pretty sure their first reaction will be, simply: #sheDIDthat
…and she DID it BIG!
What We Do
Founded in 2012, DID leads high potential Black and Latinx women founders through the startup pipeline; from the beginning of the startup funnel (idea) into the innovation ecosystem.
Our work falls into three primary areas: Incubate, Research, and Community
The BIG Incubator is an evidence-based 26-week incubator for high growth/high potential Black and Latinx women entrepreneurs.
#ProjectDiane is a ground-breaking research initiative focused on creating a body of research on women of color and tech entrepreneurship.
Activities like Events@BIG and the TOWER network work to link communities of color with the innovation ecosystem.
