We invested in the inaugural fund for Apis & Heritage Capital Partners (A&H), an impact-focused private equity firm that tackles the nation’s racial wealth gap by using the tools and best practices of employee ownership. A&H buys great small- and medium-sized businesses with significant workforces of color then converts those companies to 100% employee-owned, enabling workers of color with the opportunity to build wealth, communities with the opportunity to preserve jobs, and founding owners with the opportunity to exit responsibly.

Founders First Capital Partners helps support small businesses led by women, people of color, LGBTQ+, military veterans and companies in low to moderate income areas by offering revenue-based funding. This funding is more flexible than traditional bank debt, allowing for payments to vary based on monthly revenue, and it helps minimize the use of predatory loan products. Founders First’s innovative performance platform provides structured growth education, coaching, financial health and post-funding advisory, along with operating and execution support, to position diverse-led companies for premium-wage job creation. A Series A investor in Founders First Capital Partners, Spring Point Partners also partnered with founder Kim Folsom to bring their innovative platform to the Philadelphia and South Jersey region.

We’re proud to support founder Aaron T. Walker as he connects innovative women, nonbinary and BIPOC change makers with nurturing mentorship and capital. He and his team have invested $5M in 100+ leaders through the Camelback Fellowship. Through the Ruthless for Good Fund they are investing in 25 pre-seed and seed stage companies. The founders they support are leading the way in education, the future of work, and improving access to opportunity and well-being for historically under-invested communities.
