Inspiring the pursuit of entrepreneurship.
At Nex Cubed, we’re committed to locking arms with entrepreneurs and organizations that share our belief that having a diversity of ideas and perspectives is both the right thing to do and good for business. In fact, more than 50% of the Nex Cubed portfolio is led by female or minority founders.
Through partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Nex Cubed is engaging rising students and recent alums across multiple HBCUs interested in developing business concepts within Digital Health, FinTech, PropTech, and EdTech.
Social determinants such as Real Estate, Education, Financial Services, and Digital Health are in desperate need of systemic reform that technology can help enable.
About the program.
Nex Cubed is currently seeking students and recent alums from HBCUs across the U.S. that are interested in pursuing entrepreneurship to join us this Fall for our HBCU Founder’s Program. The program launches this Fall with a series of virtual workshops and panel discussions featuring industry experts from the Digital Health, FinTech, PropTech, and EdTech sectors.
Following the workshops and panels, students will be invited to pitch their business concepts during ideation sessions in Winter 2020.
The students with the most promising business concepts across all of the ideation sessions will be invited to participate in the two-month HBCU Founder’s Summer Acceleration Program. Each winner will receive $10,000 to cover the cost of participating in the program as well as technical resources to develop an MVP.
At the culmination of the HBCU Founder’s Summer Acceleration Program, students will pitch their business ideas to a panel of investors. The winners selected will be invited to participate in the Nex Cubed 4-month acceleration program which includes an initial capital investment in their startup and dedicated advisory support.
