Black Girl Ventures has evolved from a community-building foundation with an increasing network to generate access to financing for women, with a concentration on crowdfunded pitch competitions. According to the site, 25 students will have the opportunity to bring their thoughts to reality and improve their business plans thanks to a new cooperation with the NBA and the establishment of the BGV NextGen Program.
Sherry Bell, founder of “Black Girl Ventures” announced the news on Twitter in August 2021. In a tweet, she wrote, “We are happy to announce that @blackgirlventures will be working with the @nba to create BGV NextGen.”
The BGV NextGen Program was designed with the next generation of Black and brown entrepreneurs at HBCUs around the country in mind. The mission will continue to battle as long as it exists.
