Venture capital investors funneled nearly $330 billion to startups in 2021. That’s almost double the amount raised in 2020. Good news, right?

Astonishingly, only 1% of Black-owned businesses received venture capital funds.

And only 2% of Hispanic-owned businesses received venture capital funds.

*Pitchbook

If Hispanics and other racial minorities will be the country’s main demographic engine of population change in future years AND if economic equity has not advanced,
the US economy will be in jeopardy for all.
