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, nearly 60% of the Nex Cubed portfolio is led by female or minority founders.

In 2020, Nex Cubed launched the HBCU Founder’s Program reaching over 350 students and alumni across 50+ HBCUs interested in pursuing entrepreneurship. As a result of the first year’s success, Nex Cubed launched the HBCU Founders Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports HBCU students and alumni along their entrepreneurial journey, encouraging them to pursue solutions that close the racial wealth gap ranging from increasing access to healthcare, education, and financial services.

Nex Cubed launches the HBCU Founders Initiative to close the wealth gap through fostering entrepreneurship at HBCUs.
