Our north star comes from an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” That's why we call our community “The Herd,” as we see ourselves embarking on a collective journey with each of us going further together.

So, what what do you get with official membership in The Herd

  1. Unlock all Blogs & Interviews

  1. This includes our blog posts breaking down entrepreneurship fundamentals in addition to our interviews with successful innovators. We've created a lot of high quality content, with collective input from our community, to help inspire and guide your journey.

  2. Access all Self-Guided Courses & Workshops

  1. I've been teaching entrepreneurship at the university level for more than half a decade, and I'm always asked how folks can learn from me without going back to college. As a member of our community, you get access to my recorded courses such as Introduction to Angel Investing.

  2. Review Our Investment Memos & Analyst Reports

  1. We review various startup investment opportunities that are accessible to our community and develop a comprehensive analysis to help you see what questions you may want to ask yourself before backing a certain company. Our memos and reports are for educational purposes only, and we hope you can use them to develop an investor's mindset.

  2. Participate in Our Pitch Competitions

  1. Our unique spin on traditional pitch competitions helps earl-stage entrepreneurs get access to funding and amplify their brand to a global audience. Only our members are able to participate, and our funding comes directly from the community. In this way, our community is investing directly right back into itself. “Alexa… play ‘Let the Dollar Circulate’ by Billy Paul.”

Disrupting America’s Trillion Dollar Blind Spot

In a groundbreaking report by Morgan Stanley, it was highlighted that "Investors report capitalizing multicultural and women-owned businesses at 80% less than businesses overall." This stark underinvestment not only hampers the growth of promising businesses but also represents a missed opportunity of a staggering $4.4 trillion. At Bison Venture Partners, we recognize this gap as not just a challenge, but an immense opportunity for outsized returns.

Our Collaborative Framework

We believe in disrupting the status quo to create a more equitable economy. An economy where multicultural entrepreneurs are given the same opportunities as our counterparts will create a dynamic and resilient economy for everyone. Our strategy revolves around three core pillars:

  1. Create: We are committed to fostering the birth of new businesses, generating high-quality jobs, and opening avenues for ownership opportunities in our community.

  2. Scale: We focus on facilitating access to capital, promoting technology adoption, and building strategic partnerships that empower businesses to reach their full potential.

  3. Invest: We actively engage in community rounds, angel syndicates, and venture capital deals, with a keen focus on inclusive investment practices.

Our Vision for the Future

At Bison Venture Partners, our vision is clear: to be a leading force in building a more equitable and diverse economic landscape. We’re committed to not just participating in the market, but transforming it. By working closely with our partners and stakeholders, we aim to pave the way for a future where every entrepreneur, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to thrive.

Over the next decade, we aim to achieve the following goals:

  • Sourcing $100 Million to Black-Owned Businesses

  • Supporting 1,000 Women Entrepreneurs

  • Educating 10,000 New Angel Investors

  • Creating 1,000 New Jobs
