The Northern California Small Business Development Center and The Inclusivity Project invites startups, small business owners, angel investors, government stakeholders and industry representatives to join us for our 2021 Global Diversity and Investment Summit.

The summit features an acclaimed lineup of venture investors and BIPOC entrepreneurship experts sharing their views and insights on strategies for entrepreneurs of color on how to start, scale and sustain their new venture. Immediately following the program will be a live pitch presentation starring invited startup CEOs.

The Inclusivity Project is an initiative of the NorCal Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) that builds upon our existing efforts to help the underserved small business community establish a clear path to empowerment and continued economic and community prosperity. SBDC and Inclusivity Project partners are teaming up to provide resources including free and ongoing business and financial mentorship, business education webinars, and access to one of the most well connected small business networks in the world — so that Black Entrepreneurs can successfully navigate the path of entrepreneurship plant their flag as a proud founder.

Blaqsbi for mental liberation

Mainstream social media has been weaponized against black people. Yes, they allow us to create groups and pages dedicated to black people on their platforms. Because they are all controlled by people who are working hard to keep white supremacy alive, the minute we post something positive about black empowerment or expose rampant racism we end up in social media jail.

We must have a place where we control our narrative. Welcome to Blaqsbi. Our mission is to be the ultimate black social media platform where we can speak freely, share ideas, gain economic freedom, organize and unite without fear of white supremacist censorship and surveillance.

We are 715,413 members strong and growing. Join the mental liberation.
