Frequently Asked Questions
When is the release date?
The first four modules of the course were released on June 30th, 2021.
Am I ready to raise capital?
If you have a digital product of any sort then yes. One of the mistakes Black entrepreneurs make is not pulling the trigger.
Is the Black Founders Funding Bootcamp an Incubator or an Accelerator?
No, we don’t take any equity in your business and this course is self-directed. We provide office hours and amazing guest speakers but we don’t hand hold you through the process. Our job is to open more doors and ensure you’re prepared when those doors are opened.
Who is this course for?
Any Black founder that has an actual product and realizes that to take their business to the next level they’ll need outside funding.
What makes the Black Founders Funding Bootcamp different?
Nobody has talked to the whole spectrum of experts from Black founders to white investors. We uncovered the subtleties that go into being a Black founder that actually gets millions of dollars. We dived into uncomfortable topics and conversations that are typically held within boardrooms, behind closed doors, or privately between Black founders.
Why is this course so inexpensive?
We are offering a discount for pre-sale that won’t last. We made this course affordable because we wanted to make it accessible to thousands of Black entrepreneurs. Services like ours typically run for $1,000 or more.
How it all started...
with a cup of digital coffee and a conversation.
Tauhir Jones and Garreth Dottin created the The Black Founders Funding Bootcamp out of a curiosity as to why so few Black founders successfully raised capital. They interviewed countless funded Black entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and angel investors on the secrets of raising millions. After numerous conversations, they noticed Black entrepreneurs made a series of mistakes that kept them from getting funded. Tauhir and Garreth turned these insights into a 9 module course for outreaching and closing investors. Hundreds of hours of conversation condensed into 9 modules.
