Meet The Partners

Meet The Partners - Melanie Akwule

May 18, 2022

“There are so many deserving founders out there that need a little capital to make the next big thing happen. My personal tagline is ‘My Business is to put Black Businesses On’ and through Renew, I plan to be hyper focused on finding black founders in the B2B, B2G and enterprise space where sales cycles are long and it‘s really difficult to get to that point of product market fit without capital.”

– Melanie Akwule, General Partner

In our Meet the Partners Series, you’ll hear from our diverse team of General Partners who are focused on changing the way venture capital firms invest in and build community around its founders.
