Black Founders Fund

Streaming before it was cool

Connecting with a community of Black founders influenced me dramatically. Being around other Black founders who looked and talked like me was extremely uplifting. In most cohorts for startup mentorship, I am rarely in the company of other Black-led startups, if any at all—a challenge that we discuss at length amongst our Black Founders Fund cohort. Google has paved the way for many Black founders, including myself, to share their innovative ideas and game-changing technology with a wider audience, ultimately empowering us to more readily serve our customers and communities.

Thank you for all the Google mentors we have had throughout our beautiful journey. You have made it possible for us to reach so many people. What they are streaming is their joy, and we at Switchboard Live want to help spread that joy.
