Program provides critical grants to those who lack capital access due to systemic inequality
“Oftentimes, Black and Brown entrepreneurs lack capital access due to historic and systemic inequality,”“During the earliest stage of business development – a critical time for funding – these entrepreneurs are less likely to have the financial support from friends and family to ensure their business is a success. Render Capital’s mission is to support Black and Brown entrepreneurs in our area, helping them build generational wealth through successful business ownership. We’re proud to play a small part in helping take these local businesses to the next level with this grant program.”
Vanessa Koenigsmark, Senior Associate at Render Capital.
“We’re proud to partner with Render Capital for this grant program and look forward to seeing the strong impact this funding will have on Black and Brown entrepreneurs,”“Early investment in these entrepreneurs and their businesses will have a lasting impact in the community."
Cynthia Brown, Managing Director of Black Business Initiatives, Louisville Urban League.
