The GK Fund facilitates access to capital, mentorship, and opportunity for underrepresented startup founders, including women and people of color.
The GK Fund is a nonprofit social impact fund. Our mission is to close the race and gender wealth gap by supporting minority-owned small businesses and startups, who can face structural barriers and disparities resulting from a lack of access to capital, limited exposure to investors, and scarce resources to invest in marketing or technology.
Our Post Accelerator Fund provides seed capital, access to social networks, and mentorship to cutting-edge minority- and women-owned startups. We've partnered with accelerator programs in multiple states to identify promising startups with minority founders, who receive two years of mentoring and services to help their companies scale and grow to their full potential.
