The entrepreneurial ecosystem must evolve —
on both sides of the table.

OUR WHY

Camelback has spent the past 5 years becoming an expert in understanding the needs of diverse entrepreneurs. On that journey, we have come to better understand the ecosystem in which entrepreneurship exists - specifically, the challenges and disparities entrepreneurs of color and women face in fundraising such as limited access to funding opportunities, prohibitive due diligence, etc. Within that ecosystem, we also learned a lot about funders and investors -- while some are content with the status quo, we are ready to support and accelerate those who have the desire and commitment to break down these barriers.

Introducing, Capital Collaborative.

Beginning in July 2019, Camelback Ventures’ latest program will work with white-identifying philanthropic leaders from small to large foundations and direct grant-making institutions across the United States who want to empower, strengthen, and deepen their and their organization's commitment to racial and gender equity - but may not know how. Capital Collaborative’s unique approach brings together a new community for allies to engage in a thoughtful and action-oriented curriculum to diversify their pipelines and make their grant-making processes more equitable.  

Our mission is to increase access to opportunity for diverse founders -- join us as we expand this across the funding landscape. There’s a seat at the table.
