Black Founders Fund

The Google for Startups Black Founders Fund provides $150,000 cash awards — without giving up equity in return — and hands-on support to help Black entrepreneurs build and grow their businesses in the US. In addition to non-dilutive capital and up to $100,000 in Google Cloud credits, recipients also receive hands-on mentorship from Googlers, along with other resources such as sales training, investor prep, mental health therapy, and community offerings at no cost.
