Accelerating Black Leadership and Entrepreneurship (ABLE)

ABLE Pitch Day and Program Graduation 2023


On January 19, African Diaspora Network and the Silicon Valley Executive Center held the first hybrid pitch day and program graduation for the second cohort of Accelerating Black Leadership and Entrepreneurship. We proudly graduated eleven entrepreneurs as part of our 2023 class.
As our first hybrid event, we were elated to have such a high-energy virtual webinar and to have our in-person attendees meet the entrepreneurs firsthand. A special thank you to our mentors, facilitators, ecosystem partners, alumni, and funders for joining us to support the entrepreneurs
This event marks just the beginning. We encourage you to stay connected with the ABLE entrepreneurs and identify ways to support them in taking their ventures to the next level.
Accelerating Black Leadership and Entrepreneurship is an enterprise accelerator program designed to strengthen, energize, and support small businesses and nonprofit organizations led by Black entrepreneurs in the United States.
The ABLE Network-Building Forums are a learning series that provide a space for Black founders in the ABLE program to learn directly from and have community conversations with industry experts.
