ABOUT

Bold Venture Partners is a UC Berkeley based organization dedicated to supporting the entrepreneurial experience of underrepresented students. We believe that in order to create awesome products, technology and businesses it takes an amazing and diverse community. On Berkeley's campus, and in the surrounding entrepreneurial ecosystems, Black, Latinx and other minority entrepreneurs tend to fall through the cracks. Bold Venture Partners is working to fill that gap. We're building a community of creators, operators, investors, and mentors who share a passion for entrepreneurship and uplifting their community.
