Black Founders Fund
A Google for Startups initiative giving access to funding to Black-founded startups in Europe.
About the initiative
If we want technology to work for everyone, it needs to be built by everyone. Black founders in Europe disproportionately lack access to the networks and capital needed to grow their businesses. In 2020, with less than .5% of venture capital (VC) funding going to Black-led startups, Google announced the Black Founders Fund. Applications for the latest $4M Black Founders Fund in Europe are now open until April 17th (23:59 GMT). Find out more and apply below. Founders will receive up to $100K in equity-free cash, up to an additional $200K in Cloud Credits, and access to the best of Google—people, products, and best practices.
