Atlanta-Based Genius Guild Investing $5M Into Black-Founded Companies

Atlanta-based Genius Guild has come out of stealth with more than $5 million in investments to help grow the ecosystem of Black-founded companies.

The money comes from a variety of partners including Pivotal Ventures, The Impact Seat, First Close Partners and other individuals.

The new firm is the brainchild of tech entrepreneur and investor Kathryn Finney and takes a multifaceted approach to helping Black entrepreneurs — offering investment through its Greenhouse Fund to tech-enabled companies, while also offering a lab and studio to help Black founders build a community and receive business help and advise.
