digitalundivided – Finding untapped opportunities in innovation

Founded in 2013
5 employees
Funding Social enterprise

digitalundivided is shattering the myth that diverse founders can’t be successful. Since 2013, DID has impacted over 2,000 people and helped raise $15M in investments. In 2016 their groundbreaking research, “#ProjectDiane”, drew widespread buzz for disrupting the dialogue around women of color and tech entrepreneurship. The report was widely shared and received national media attention for quantifying the often overlooked state of black women in the tech entrepreneurship space. The findings put a unique spotlight on the problem of inclusion in the innovation space, leading DID to develop a “first of its kind” solution. DID’s BIG Innovation Center and its resident BIG Accelerator is the only space and program dedicated to the growth of high-growth tech businesses founded by Black & Latina women. Located in Atlanta, the first cohort started in Fall 2016.
