Every entrepreneur is different and we create the space for them to build authentically
Capital structures built for entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs start companies to do more than maximize profit. They are changemakers with the capacity to serve and transform entire communities.
They create economic freedom and new jobs, give people agency and self-actualization, and build products and companies that enable a better life for their communities.
The entrepreneurial journey
There is nothing easy or trivial about entrepreneurship. It can be one of the most emotionally, intellectually, and personally challenging endeavors of a lifetime. Often, it can feel like you’re alone, like the world doesn’t want you to succeed.
It can be life-altering when people show up and accept you, support your vision, and connect you to resources to enable you on your journey. That's what we're here to do.
Here's how Able Fund works
1. We raise and deploy philanthropic capital to enroll you in one of our partner programs: either the Investable System, our Black Kraken peer-mentoring cohort, our Fish Tank crowdfunding events, or other targeted resources that help you reach your business goals.
2. We work alongside you and bring in powerful allies from our community (other entrepreneurs, donors, investors, operators) to find and bridge gaps in strategy, business models, execution, and expertise. Our programs are tailored to each business and usually takes between 2-6 months.
Who We Work With
We work with a diverse set of community-oriented founders that solve meaningful problems. We also focus on companies, markets, or entrepreneurs that have historically been ignored by existing capital markets. This is where we see opportunity:
Companies that are overlooked due to patient growth goals or perceived return on investment opportunity of 2x-3x
In diverse communities, especially female founders and founders of color that have traditionally been left out of prevailing startup and venture capital culture
Founders that solve real, meaningful problems with economic impact built into the business model
Geographically challenged (not in a coastal “hot spot”)
If this is you, let's work together!
