New Possibilities

for Underserved Communities


Vencapital is a venture accelerator that provides entry-level experience for minorities and women seeking career opportunity in venture finance. We are a growing talent shop for venture builders and our sole mission is to help increase the number of women and minorities in the venture workforce. We are driving this mission home through our fellowship program that allow fellows find new career pathways in venture finance. 

We are a strong supporter of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (7, 8, 9, 10) and currently serve as a strategic partner in building inclusive systems within venture firms and early stage companies in the US. 


Vencapital champion's diversity in venture recruiting

and work to support organizations that seek to improve their talent pipeline. Our fellowship program allows fund managers to drive quality talents across their portfolio as well as internally within their organization.
