ESO Entrepreneur - Cohort 5
Created for Black & Brown entrepreneurs
ESO Ventures is committed to create a safe space for Black & Brown business owners where current issues are dealt with when discussing business creation. We are aware of how racial violence and racist policies have limited economic growth for Black & Brown communities.
We envision entrepreneurship as a path towards liberation. It allows us to challenge narratives about our worth, abilities and power.
Through entrepreneurship, we can dismantle racist, oppressive systems that have kept communities of color from thriving.
Meet the team
Our founders, program team and business coaches are experienced entrepreneurs and professionals with expertise in developing Black and Brown business owners. Their extensive knowledge in business development, raising capital, HR, business culture and growth strategy, establishes a high standard for entrepreneurs who complete the program. Most importantly, we know how to work collaboratively with entrepreneurs and community partners to drive real business results.
“So many Black and Brown folks start with entrepreneurship even before knowing what that means for them, because there’s something moving them to connect, to grow community and to surround themselves with people who will inspire them."
