Our brands don’t fall short when the medium changes
We look for minority founders who want to scale
Minority founders are less likely to receive investments for their company, and minority women are the bottom of that scale. Yet they control nearly half of all women run businesses.Read More
We seek to find the
brands who dare to dream
Being the harbinger of change is the only way that change can happen in society. Minorities, specifically black women are successful in every business they start but rarely if ever do they get the means or the connections to start.
Most black women usually are the only bread winners of their family and the only founder in there companies. They often work two to three jobs while also starting a business. This puts them in an more complicated position in being able to add more to theirs business when it is time to scale.
We seek to make the changes very few will make
Change comes when most people, are willing to create the space and the means to help others who typically have no way to help themselves. In return these same people will use these opportunities to help others.
We look for companies
who think about the what if's
The concept of starting a company is always asking the right questions and trying to solve these question with yet to be tested solutions.
Representation is key to developing
all areas of society
2% of capital is going to U.S.-based female-only founder teams,. Of the 2%, women of color get only a fraction. In Canada this is percent is even worst. According to The Financial Post black entrepreneurs in Canada often find themselves underfunded and unsupported by venture capitalists, who pour money into companies run by people in their existing networks, which are predominantly white and male. Quantifying how much less funding Black business owners are receiving is tough because such metrics are seldom tracked in Canada
but entrepreneurs and investors estimate it to be on par with — or even worse than — the U.S. This is why Dreamscapes Ventures is necessary in filling these gaps that are blatantly being ignored in Canada and the United States. Less than one per cent of the US$543 billion in venture capital offered in the U.S. between 2015 and 2019 was given to Black and African American founders, according to business information platform Crunchbase. That’s just US$4.9 billion. Meanwhile, only two of 300 grants the Canadian government offered women-owned businesses went to Black-run companies in 2018.
