We Are For You:

Black Founders of Tech Startups

In collaboration with Google for Startups, Black Founders Exchange is a curated program designed to move companies with a high-growth, scalable model from initial product to successfully raising seed capital with their business. Established in 2016, Black Founders Exchange — hosted by American Underground and Google for Startups — provides rich hands-on training, meaningful connections, and supportive community to help Black-led startups grow.


With COVID-19 affecting many businesses across the nation, we’ve revamped our program offerings this year to support you, the Founder, in navigating the new norms you’re facing. We have surveyed our audience to help create a robust and meaningful virtual event in the fall of 2020 which will be open to our alumni. More information coming soon.
