The Pitch Black Accelerator (“PBA”) is the premier enterprise accelerator program designed to strengthen, energize, and support startups and small businesses led by BIPOC entrepreneurs in Nebraska and throughout the Midlands. Since 2021, we have served 48 micro businesses. The PBA identifies BIPOC business leaders with impact-oriented solutions, addressing essential community needs, while spurring sustainable growth. With your support, MAC will provide mentoring, business financial literacy training, and funding opportunities for the cohort. Participants in the program will earn cash incentives and compete in the Pitch Black competition finale, on July 8, 2023, at the Creighton University Harper Center in Omaha. The event will feature inspiring speakers, live pitches judged by business leaders, a business expo, and 400 attendees. We will also hold our special Ubuntu Mixer connecting finalists with local and regional funders in June 2023.

Please submit this form by February 28, 2023. Deliverables may have to be scaled in the event of later commitment.
