James Oliver on empowering Black parentpreneurs

February 9th, 2021

David Cohen talks with James Oliver about why he started the ParentPreneur Foundation, how he got it off the ground, and why it supports Black parent entrepreneurs. 

In this episode of the Give First podcast, Techstars cofounder and Chairman of the Board David Cohen talks with James Oliver about why he started the ParentPreneur Foundation.

The foundation “empower[s] Black ParentPreneurs, so they can leave a legacy for their children,” and provides grants, community, and resources for Black parents who are also doing the hard work of starting a company. 

Listen for more about why Oliver chose Black parent entrepreneurs as the group who most needed his help right now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, plus insights on how he got the foundation off the ground so quickly — and how his other company, WeMontage.com is doing.
