Equal access to capital and entrepreneurship is the final civil rights movement – TechCrunch
But despite my privilege, I’m also confident that my Black heritage made it more difficult for me to raise venture capital. Today — and the data proves this — if you are a white male, you have an unfair advantage when looking to raise venture capital. Those closer to the concentric circles of venture capital know that venture capital exists and they know how to access it. Silicon Valley has created incredible outcomes, and I don’t want to unfairly malign Silicon Valley as this racist institution that deliberately keeps out minorities and women. I firmly believe that equal access to capital and entrepreneurship is the final civil rights movement.
