MEET THE FOUNDERS
You're Invited To Meet Our Founders
Our Capital Matchmaker program connects Black, Latinx and Women founders with capital, and we invite you to watch the pitch event online on January 21, 2021.
In addition, we are facilitating connections between 5 founders who we believe are running companies that offer great early-stage investment opportunities for pre-seed, seed and angel investors. Each of these companies has the strength of management team, execution and opportunity to be very exciting, and they represent the beginning of the pipeline of great companies we will continue to highlight and bring forward. Take a look and sign-up below for the chance to meet any/all you'd like to connect with further.

LifeWeb 360 helps grieving communities capture memories and support and one another—we’re building cemetery 2.0, which doesn’t remind you that your person died, it reminds you how they lived. Friends and family can share stories, photos, and videos that are organized to create context and meaning, and can also be turned into a physical memory book. It's like social media for the soul—a place to acknowledge and honor the meaningful in life, and begin to awaken our empathetic world.
