Black Ambition and Mosaic Genius announce the Gathering on the Vineyard Prize Competition, an opportunity for Black and Latinx entrepreneurs to pitch their business ventures for a chance to win access to mentorship and growth capital.
A panel of expert judges will award $20k to the top three applicants. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000, the second place winner will receive $7,000, and the third place winner will receive $3,000.
