New Voices Fund is a $100 Million Fund created to empower women of color entrepreneurs to reach their full potential. This groundbreaking initiative, designed to level the playing field, provides women of color entrepreneurs with unprecedented access, capital, and expertise they need to excel. This highly efficient fund supports start-ups, established businesses, and community-based enterprises. Our goal is to deliver unprecedented impact to our communities by ensuring New Voices of entrepreneurship learn, grow, and thrive for generations to come.
New Voices Fund was founded by family-run conglomerate Sundial Brands, owner of best-selling brands SheaMoisture and Nubian Heritage. The brainchild of co-founder and CEO Richelieu Dennis, New Voices Fund is consistent with a long-standing tradition and business philosophy of taking care of and investing back in the community. New Voices continues a deep family legacy of community commerce by investing in global communities through the economic empowerment of women of color.
In addition to the New Voices Fund, the New Voices Foundation, the 501(c)(3) non-profit arm of the New Voices Fund, was established to inspire a society and economy that supports and values entrepreneurial women of color for the significant positive, innovative contributions they make and will continue to make in the future. Through the foundation, we will offer resources to support New Voices entrepreneurs in achieving their vision through leadership development, skill-building, networking opportunities, and more.
