Get ready #Roommates because legendary actress Keshia Knight Pulliam has a new business venture that is not only full of #BlackGirlMagic, but also geared towards putting plenty of coins in your bank account.
The wage gap for black women may be disheartening and have a long way to go before true equality is reached—but black women are also one of the leading groups of entrepreneurship and because of this, Keshia Knight Pulliam wants to help.
As reported by @BET, Keshia has teamed up with entrepreneur Arian Simone to launch a venture capital fund specifically for black women entrepreneurs. Through the venture capital fund, known as the Fearless Fund, Keshia and Simone are set to invest $15 million to support startups created and founded by women of color, at the pre-seed, seed-level, and for a series of funding.
The Fearless Fund will also have a mentor program and has created an impressive network in the business and entertainment world who are eager to help. A few of the noteworthy supporters includes Black-ish star Marsai Martin, The 22 Fund Managing Partner Tracy Gray, and OBGYN and cast member of Married to Medicine Dr. Jacqueline Waters. Additionally,
The Fearless Fund has already hosted pitch competitions at the headquarters of Facebook Headquarters and Spanx. If you are interested in learning more about the Fearless Fund, check it out here.
