The Nex Cubed HBCU Founders Fund is a $40 million accelerator fund that seeks to foster and invest in startups where at least one founder is an HBCU student, alum, or faculty member.
The HBCU Founders Fund Accelerator is a four-month (mostly virtual) intensive program completely customized for each startup. The program starts with detailed discussions around goals, a work plan is created, and KPIs are chosen to track. Each portfolio company works one-on-one with a dedicated advisor that we pay to provide executive-level support to the founders for the entirety of the program. The 16-week program culminates in an in-person Showcase Pitch Event in Silicon Valley in the Summer of 2023.
Join us for a Kickoff Reception as we welcome our first cohort to the Spring 2023 Founders Fund Accelerator.
