“Every block, every hood, every city, every ghetto… need a Black superhero…”
Black Superhero - Robert Glasper
Understanding your “why” is probably the most important part about The Ghetto VC.
Since this publication is about shifting mindsets and thinking that you can in fact invest in the same quality deals as a venture capitalist, it’s important to understand “why” you want to build wealth in such a way.
Now, I can't come up with that reason for you, but I can explain the thought process behind why I invest in startups and why venture capitalists do too.
The Ghetto VC isn’t about glorifying venture capitalists in any way. In many ways, I believe they’ve contributed to wealth disparities and inequalities discussed in this publication. The mindset, however, is one I believe can create a transformational shift and be applied to our everyday lives. Venture Capital is not perfect, and it is certainly not the end goal, but we can take lessons from it to build the future we desire.
My “why” is to build wealth, not just for myself as an individual, but to build wealth that my family, future generations, and my entire community can benefit from.
