HBCU.vc trains students become venture capitalists

There are very few black and Latinx investors, with only 2 percent of investment team members at VC firms identifying as black and just 1 percent identifying as Latinx, according to the National Venture Capital Association. This is where HBCU.vc comes in.

HBCU.vc, a pivot from HBCU to Startup, aims to diversify the white, male-dominated world of venture capital. HBCU.vc’s program works with students attending historically black colleges and universities to teach them the fundamentals of venture capital and entrepreneurship.

The goal of the remote-based program is educate underserved communities about VC and to build the next generation of venture capitalists and entrepreneur.

“We haven’t seen racial diversity in venture capital and realize how it has a huge impact on the overall tech ecosystem,” HBCU.vc founder Hadiyah Mujhid told TechCrunch. “What currently happens is investors invest within their network — people they know. Those people then turn around and hire people they know within their network. There are these systematic structures in place that, by design, have locked out people of color.”

Through the program, students are paired with a VC mentor, work as interns at a venture capital firm and act as investors in their local college communities. The year-long program teaches students how to identify investment opportunities, conduct market research and make real funding decisions. HBCU.vc mentors include Lo Toney of Google Ventures, Carolina Huaranca of Kapor Capital, Monique Woodard of 500 Startups, Richard Kerby of Venrock and others.

HBCU.vc’s first batch includes 11 students from three universities: Fisk, Florida A&M and Prairie View A&M. Students were not required…

INSIDE THE GIANT

Anda and Savile Row Bespoke outdid themselves yesterday, at the second The English Gentleman event. Held in the pavilion of Lord’s, there were dozens of suits on display from 19 different Savile Row houses. Most importantly, many of them had spent the time and money making the suits for the models, so the fit was impeccable.
For those that have never had the privilege of visiting it, it is hard to describe the quiet majesty of the Long Room at Lord’s (above). Beautiful raised chairs, enormous sash windows, with a few other spectators and a white picket fence between you and some of the best sport in the world.
Highlights among the suits included Chittleborough & Morgan’s peaked-lapel worsted grey, and the Anderson & Sheppard linen worn by everyone from John Hitchcock to Dougray Scott.
Indeed, for all the shimmering styling of the suits on the models, some of the best dressed were the guests, with Michael Browne of C&M wearing his navy seersucker and both Anda Rowland and Audie Charles from A&S in beautifully coordinated outfits. If anyone wants to know how to wear tailoring without appearing stiff, look no further than these two when they’re in a jacket.

I understand the challenge of dealing with life’s trials and tribulations because I lived through many of them. My story is not about getting knocked down; it is a story about getting up again… As a child I was the only African American student in many childhood classrooms.

There have been reports of more clowns in more cities spotted lurking in the woods. In the past month, police in the Carolinas have received multiple reports from people claiming clowns with white-painted faces were acting strangely in the area – at least once attempting to lure kids into the woods with money. The reports have fueled speculation that the sightings could be a hoax, or possibly even morbid fans trying to promote the 2017

This morning, the Senate unveiled their Obamacare repeal plan. Unsurprisingly, it’s just as cruel as the irresponsible bill the House passed in May.

Here’s what we know so far about this bill: It would…
Insure fewer Americans than the current law and raise costs for millions more
End Medicaid as we know it
Eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood
Health care is complicated. But the devastating impacts of this bill are not: If it passes, lives will be on the line.

We’re down to the wire, and we all need to do something — anything — to make a difference.

Here are three ways to be heard: Get in touch with a key senator directly by making a call right now, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, or pitch in to fund the work ahead in the next few weeks. OFA volunteers continue to push back against congressional leaders’ disastrous Obamacare repeal plan — help them now:
