Thank you Rev. Al Sharpton and his incredible team at the National Action Network for hosting PSK Collective at the Triumph awards ceremony. Mighty advocates, including Ben Crump Law, PLLC, and Alphonso David, as well as visionaries like the Fearless Fund, Ayana Parsons, and Arian Simone, we are with you and proud of you. Only together will our voices be loud enough to get heard, and we intend to get loud right along with you.

 The Fearless Fund holds significant importance as it actively addresses the glaring disparities within the venture capital industry, particularly for businesses led by women of color. By providing financial investments and grants, it not only offers critical support to underrepresented entrepreneurs but also serves as a beacon of diversity and inclusion in the business world. It showcases the potential and success of women of color-led businesses, contributing to a broader movement advocating for greater diversity and equity. Furthermore, the fund's advocacy for policy changes, such as mandating institutional investors to support minority-owned companies, has the potential to bring about lasting transformation in an industry where such businesses are consistently underfunded, thus playing a pivotal role in reshaping the landscape of venture capital.
