Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to establish relationships with many Black entrepreneurs.

Through these relationships, we have heard firsthand about the challenges these entrepreneurs encounter while trying to secure capital to expand their businesses.

In response to these challenges, we founded SBLK Ventures with the aim of building a community of value-aligned investors dedicated to bridging the funding gap that exists for Black founders.

Investment Thesis

Our investment strategy revolves around targeting startups led by Black entrepreneurs within the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) and Consumer Technology industries, though we remain open to opportunities in other sectors as well.

We believe that the Black community is a major untapped market for consumer products and services, and we are committed to investing in companies that are creating innovative products and services that have the potential to make a significant impact on the lives of consumers and to create wealth and opportunity for Black entrepreneurs.
