Talent is evenly distributed. Opportunity is not. 

The tools and resources currently deployed in our entrepreneurial ecosystem don’t work for everybody.

Founders of color receive less than 1% of national venture capital investment, and women receive less than 2%. 

Black and Latine entrepreneurs are three times more likely to be declined for a bank loan than white entrepreneurs.

Lunar Startups is building a future where ALL entrepreneurs have the resources, community, connectivity, and the support they need to scale companies that are solving the world’s most critical problems.

Our goal? $1 billion in economic impact.

Lunar's programming has supported over 700+ underrepresented entrepreneurs, and our 60 cohort companies have achieved:

  • 194% average revenue growth per company while they are in the program.
  • $235 million in economic impact for the Minneapolis-St. Paul region.
  • 133 new, high-quality jobs.

We know that the economy of the future will be built by leaders who can bring fresh perspectives to solve our most pressing challenges.

To solve the challenges of the future, we need to support emerging leaders today.

We need collective action to ensure that the next generation of titans represent the true breadth of diversity that makes our community so great. 

With your support, we are confident in our goal of unlocking the full potential of our community by creating $1 billion in economic impact by 2025.
