VC office hours for black founders

| News, USA

Partner Rohini Chakravarthy is pledging her time to make the technology industry more inclusive and help underrepresented groups gain access

President Barack Obama recently wrote about the willingness among people to bring about real change but not knowing how. “As millions of people across the country take to the streets and raise their voices in response to the killing of George Floyd and the ongoing problem of unequal justice, many people have reached out asking how we can sustain momentum to bring about real change.”

In the Venture Capital industry, one way to bring about real change is to spend more time on the inclusion of underrepresented founder groups. At NGP Capital, we stand in solidarity against racism and respect the integrity of others, regardless of ethnicity, background, gender, or age. We are proud to have invested in many mission-driven businesses that provide vital services to those in need. We will continue to promote globalism, diversity, and inclusion in each of our markets across North America, Europe, and Asia.

We have joined forces with a range of other VC’s to be the change we want to see. If you are a black founder of a tech company looking for growth-stage funding in the US, please book time with Rohini through this link
