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.
