Multicultural Business Xcellerator (MBX)

The Multicultural Business Xcellerator (MBX) project, funded by the Walton Family Foundation, will provide tailored support and funding to a cohort of self-identified socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs who are founders or co-founders of Seed/Series A investment-ready companies. This support will include mentorship, access to capital and networking opportunities. By addressing under-represented entrepreneurs in the high-growth, high-potential innovation sector, MBX seeks to drive a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem.
