$500k in Non-Equity Grants for South LA Founders

$500k in Non-Equity Grants for South LA Founders

The events of recent months and the movement for Black lives have only deepened our commitment to advancing racial equity and justice in our city. In response to our survey data, which showed persistent gaps in access to capital for founders of color, we are thrilled to announce the PledgeLA Fund for South LA Founders. We need your help to make this happen!

We’re raising this non-dilutive fund to provide founders in South LA with access to funding, training, and networks to grow their companies. This fall, PledgeLA will select 20 Black and Latinx founders to receive $25k to take their businesses to the next level, along with three months of support and mentorship from Grid110. As they receive this support, each entrepreneur will be paired with an advisory team of PledgeLA founders and investors.

  • Is your company interested in supporting the fund? Contact us at info@pledgela.org.
  • Are you a founder interested in participating? Sign up here to get updates.

PledgeLA is a coalition of tech companies and venture capital firms working to measurably increase diversity, equity, and community engagement, hosted by the Annenberg Foundation and the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti.
