M12 and Microsoft for Startups are proud to sign on as the Diamond Corporate Sponsor of Black & Brown Founders, a nonprofit organization providing Black and Latinx entrepreneurs with best practices and a community through which to build and successfully launch their tech companies.
This marks the third year that Microsoft has signed on to support this organization. As a result of this sponsorship, Black & Brown Founders can now offer their Bootstrapping Bootcamps, priced on a sliding scale and supplemented with scholarships to founders. The sponsorship will also help fund the launch of a new conference and community, CHROMA.
Initially piloted in 2019, Bootstrapping Bootcamp is a virtual ten-week training program that serves pre-revenue entrepreneurs with tutorials, templates, and tools to help them build out their tech businesses. The newest iteration of the program, enrollment for which launches June 22, already has a waitlist of over 150 people ready to join the next cohort.
CHROMA (Sept. 28 — Oct. 2, 2020) is a new, multi-day, virtual conference and online community hub that converts into a library of content to help founders level up their tech businesses and discover funding opportunities. CHROMA will feature Black and Latinx tech entrepreneurs, leaders, and subject matter experts from around the globe.
