We know that as a Black entrepreneur, sourcing outside capital for your startup is difficult, but it’s not impossible. With a stronger focus on diversity over the last few years, the investment community has been more vocal in supporting Black founders and Black-owned companies. There are few funds in Canada that are dedicated to supporting diverse founders. One of such funds is Dream Maker Ventures (DMV). DMV Launched in 2015, is the first Black-led venture fund in Canada, and is the investment arm of Dream Maker Corporation, a Toronto-based vertically integrated asset management firm.
