Around The Herd | Recorded Live 4.6.2023
Welcome to Around The Herd with Bison Venture Partners where we’re educating 10,000 new Angel Investors over the next decade in our mission to build generational wealth with our community. Why? Because investing in privately-held businesses has historically been a proven wealth-building strategy for elites, but the rules have changed, and it’s never been easier for everyday people to do the same. If we’re going to close the racial & wealth gaps that exist today, we must leverage innovative opportunities to do so. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and podcast at www.bv.partners and follow us @bisonvp on social media to stay up to date and be in-the-know about other exciting opportunities.
Today, we’re discussing an equity crowdfunding investment opportunity in Substack, which is currently fundraising on Wefunder! Before we get into that, here’s a quick message from our sponsor, BVP Coffee Co.
BVP Coffee Co. provides single origin coffee and unique blends from all around the world. We bring communities together through stories of global travel, entrepreneurship, and collaboration. Our latest product, “1867,” is an ode to the rich & illustrious legacies of two of the world’s leading educational institutions, Howard University & Morehouse College—both established in the year 1867. Each bag celebrates the collaboration of servant leaders devoted to uplifting their communities through entrepreneurship. In our mission to invest in the next generation, we donate $1 from each bag sold to support business students attending Historically Black Colleges & Universities. Visit www.bvp.coffee and help us raise $1M in scholarships for HBCU entrepreneurs. Be sure to use our discount code “BVPHERD” for free shipping!
