Minority Owned Businesses

VFNA recognizes the need for greater investment and opportunity in minority owned businesses. Our regional conferences and events are a great way for minority owned businesses to find the business capital partners they need to foster economic development, create jobs and increase opportunity. 

Access to capital is one of the biggest obstacles faced by today's startups and growing businesses. VFNA helps solve that problem by providing a bridge to funding opportunities for minority business owners. We provide the opportunities for minority business owners to connect with business funding options, including angel investors, venture capitalists, business loan providers, start-up funders, private equity investors and more. 

Finding business capital can be a challenge for growing businesses in any community. VFNA helps make that process easier by offering robust learning and networking conferences and events that brings together diverse entrepreneurs with funding opportunities from different types of funders regionally and nationally.  

Whether their business is an exciting new start-up or an established player looking for funding to grow in the in the arena of Business to Business -  Business to Government or Business to Consumer marketing and/or services, VFNA offers minority business owners the opportunity to communicate directly with the business investors and business loan sources that can help them move forward. 

Minority business owners can find out more about gaining access to capital for their business at a regional conference and workshop hosted by Venture Funding network Alliance. These networking and learning events bring diverse entrepreneurs and business funding partners together.
