Black Lives Still Matter
By Nihal Mehta, Founding General Partner at Eniac Ventures
Since June 1, using no charge-appointments on Superpeer, Eniac Ventures booked 375 virtual meetings with Black founders, and successfully completed 168 so far.
As a firm that values diversity immensely, we realize that venture capital is not a meritocracy, and the best ideas of Black founders, founders of color and women, are often inhibited, not encouraged or empowered. We also realize through our own journeys that access to networks, knowledge, and capital helped us build Eniac Ventures to what it is. We are paying it forward.
