Congratulations 2023 Black Ambition Finalists
Positioning Black and Hispanic Entrepreneurs to Excel, Uninterrupted
Black Ambition announces the 2023 Finalists – In our relentless pursuit of reducing barriers to capital and closing the racial wealth and opportunity gap, we proudly present the 2023 Black Ambition Prize Finalists. This competition consists of two prestigious tracks: The General Prize track and the HBCU Prize track, both crafted to empower Black and Hispanic entrepreneurs with the resources they need to turn their bold ideas into reality.
Our journey began with a cohort of 250 extraordinary semifinalists who embarked on a transformative 3-month journey through our Black Ambitionist Mentorship Program, powered by Cinematica Labs. This initiative matched them with industry experts and provided them with invaluable peer-to-peer learning, curated training opportunities, and a vibrant network of leaders that would shape their entrepreneurial future.
Today, we stand on the threshold of greatness as we unveil the next steps in the Black Ambition Prize Competition:
🎉 Introducing the Top 50 Finalists 🎉
