Tech for Black Founders

Today, only 1% of founders backed by venture capital in the United States are Black.

As a growing leader in the technology industry, we will use the Branch platform in collaboration with other prominent companies to start evening those odds in whatever way we can.

The Growth Stack and why it’s valuable

The initial tools in this collection span what we call the Growth Stack—data collection, attribution, analytics, and customer engagement. Branch and the other companies included offer strong native integrations that are often implemented and used together by digital businesses.

These are fast-growing SaaS products that help companies capture and act on customer data to accelerate their growth.
