Bronze Valley is a non-profit, early stage venture investment platform that supports high growth, innovation and technology-enabled companies created by diverse, underrepresented and underestimated founders. The organization is also certified as a Community Development Financial Institution (“CDFI”). The mission of Bronze Valley is to create an education-to opportunity-to outcome pipeline for communities that are underrepresented in technology careers and in fields where innovators will create the future. Together, we can be the catalyst we have been waiting for.
