We conduct surveys to better understand the network of founders we’re building. This information confirms why FGF needs to exist. In Q4 of 2019, FGF conducted a survey to gather data on business funding being allocated to founders. We received 34 responses. Here’s the break down:

The lack of Black employers is highlighted in “To expand the economy, invest in Black businesses” published by Brookings. The co-author’s empirical research is a foundation for building an ecosystem of leaders to support Black entrepreneurship. FGF supports this effort by growing a network of founders ready to get funds together.
