The Mission: Connecting high potential, minority-led tech startups in the South with seed capital.

Nationally, 41% of tech startups pitching for funding are women or minority-led.

Only 10% of tech startups who are funded are minority-led.

That's a significant gap.
30% of our tech innovators are in it.

Startup Runway turns that gap into an onramp in the Southeast.
