CNBC: Black-led VC fund aims to even the playing field for minority health-tech startups

The number of women and minority-owned venture and private equity funds rose 25% the year after the George Floyd protests, according to Fairview Capital Partners.

In 2021, venture capital and private equity saw a 25% jump in woman- and minority-owned firms in the industry, according Fairview Capital Partners. The actual numbers remain small — 627 women- and minority-led firms, 84 of which were Black-owned. Their capital raises were also smaller; the median was $100 million, compared with $170 million industrywide.
