Mission of Urban Capital Network

UCN radically levels the playing field of the early-stage investment ecosystem. We democratize access for a broader pool of investors and generate vital capital for underserved entrepreneurs.

How do we achieve our mission? We have a two-step effort to democratize the early-stage investment ecosystem.

First, UCN expands and extends investment access to premium early-stage companies to a broader pool of investors, thereby increasing the odds of success for this broader set of investors.

Second, UCN has created a pathway for successful investments to foster and ignite reinvestment into underserved entrepreneurs with the aim of closing the gaps in innovation, employment, and wealth in urban communities. The founders of UCN have committed a portion of their earnings to the Innovation Center for Urban Entrepreneurship (iCUE), an affiliated nonprofit, to facilitate investing in underserved entrepreneurs and urban communities. iCUE’s forthcoming diversity and inclusion investment fund will enable growth in underserved entrepreneurs by investing vital capital to support their success.
