    Dream Legacy Foundation - A black male entrepreneur pitching an idea at a meeting


    Diverse communities continue to face barriers in accessing lucrative entrepreneurship opportunities created by Canada’s growing technology-driven innovation sector. Black entrepreneurs in particular, encounter steep challenges when starting and growing a business, from accessing seed capital to fewer publicly recognized role models.


    To fill that void, we have created a partnership with Ryerson DMZ and other partners to create the first Canadian fellowship program for Black startup entrepreneurs.
